After Victory or Deliverance from an

Enemy. A Psalm or Hymn of Praise and Thanksgiving after Vi&ors. F the Lord had not been on our fide, now may we say :

if the Lord himself had not been on our fide, when men rose up against us ;

They had swallowed us up quick : when they were so wrathfully displeased at us.

Yea, the waters had drowned us, and the stream had gone over our soul : the deep waters of the proud had gone over our foul,

But praised be the Lord : who hath not given us over as a prey unto them.

The Lord hath wrought : a mighty salvation for us.

We gat nor this by our own sword, neither was it our own arm that saved us : but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance; because thou hadit a favour

The Lord hath appeared for us : the Lord hath covered our heads, and made us to stand in the day of battle.

The Lord hath appeared for us : the Lord hath overthrown our enemies, and dashed in peices those that rose up against us.

Threfore not unto us, O Lord, not unto us : but uatu thy Name be given the Glory.

The Lord hath done great things for us: the Lord hath done great things for us, for which we rejoice.

And, we beseech thee, give us grace to improve this great mercy to thy glory, the advancement of thy Gofpel, the honour of our Sovereign, and, as much as in us lieth, to the good of all Mankind. And we beseech thee, give us such a sense of this great mercy, as may engage us to a true thankfulness, such as may appear in our lives, by an humble, holy, and obedient walking before thee all our days, through Jesus Christ our Lord; to whom, with thee, and the Holy Spirit, as for all thy mercies, so in particular for this Victory and Deliverance, be all glory and honour world without end.
