Where God and saints abide,

Our light, and our defence:
With gifts his hands are filled;

We draw our blessings thence:

Peculiar grace,
On Jacob's race


And glory too.

His hand no good withholds
From those his heart approves,

From pure and upright souls:
Thrice happy be,

Whose spirit trusts
O God of hosts! Alone in thee.

Quickening Grace implored.
1 LORD, thou hast called thy grace to mind,

Thou hast reversed our heavy doom:
So God forgave, when Israel sinned,

And brought his wandering captives homo. 2 Thou hast begun to set us free,

And made thy fiercest wrath'abate:
Now let our hearts be turned to thee,

And thy salvation be complete.
3 Revive our dying graces, Lord,

And let thy saints in thee rejoice:
Make known thy truth-fulfil thy word
We wait for praise to tune our voice.

The Creator only worthy to be worshipped. 1

Of earth, and sea, and worlds unknown; All things are subject to thy laws,

All things depend on thee alone.

Of all, within itself, possessed ;
Controlled by none are thy commands;

Thou, from thyself alone, art blest.

To thee alone, our homage pay;
All other gods we disavow,

Deny their claims-renounce their sway. f 4 Spread thy great name through heathen lands,

Their idol deities dethrone;
Subdue the world to thy commands,

And reign, as thou art—God alone.

Foundation for his heavenly praise;

But still in Zion loves to dwell.

That pay their night and morning vows;
But makes a more delightful stay,

Where churches meet to praise and pray. p 3 What glories were described of old !

What wonders are of Zion told !
Thou city of our God below,
Thy fame shall all the nations know.

And earth thy fame resound afar.
