Display thy grace-exert thy power,
84 THIRD Part. C. M. Medford.
MY soul, how lovely is the place
To which thy God resorts !
Though in his earthly courts.

And sheds abroad his grace.

And still we seek thy mercies there, i
And sing thy praises still.

While far from thine abode ;
My Saviour, and my God?
And hear thy gracious voice,

Or the more boundless sea,
I'd give them both away. 84 FIFTA PART. C. M. Dunchurch.
O GOD of hosts-the mighty Lord,
How lovely is the place,
The brightness of thy face!

From them that justly live.
How highly blest are they,
And there thy praise display!

Quickening Grace implored
And brought his wandering captives home. 2 Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made thy fiercest wrath abate:
And thy salvation be complete.

Lest his returning wrath increase.

The Creator only worthy to be worshipped.
Of earth, and sea, and worlds unknown;

Their idol deities dethrone;
And reign, as thou art—God alone.

Unite them all to fear thy name.
With all their powers, shall raise the song:
