4.Or, mingling with the choral throng,
Our joyful voices raise,
In notes of grateful praise. 76
Let earth, let heaven, Hosanna sing.
The dead and living swell the sound. 3 O Saviour! with protecting care,
Return to this, thy house of prayer:
Here we thy parting promise claim.
Eternal! bid thy Spirit rest,
A temple pure, and worthy thee!
C. M. How lovely are thy dwellings, Lord, 11 From noise and trouble free! How beautiful the sweet accord
Of souls that pray to thee!
2 Lord God of hosts, that reign'st on high!
They are the truly blest, swole &
In thee alone will rest. Leta od
The dry and barren ground,
Where springs and showers abound. 4 They journey on from strength to 993 strength,
With joy and gladsome cheer.

I ORD, to thy sacred house
In full assembly meet.
And from thy throne thy mercy shine. 2 O send thy light abroad!
Thy truth with heavenly ray Shall lead our souls to God, ** And guide our doubtful way. We'll hear thy word with faith sincere,
And learn to fear and praise the Lord. 3 Reach forth thy bounteous hand,
And all our sorrows heal; E Here health and strength divine ,
O make our bosoms feel! Like balmy dew shall Jesus' voice, TS Our bones rejoice, our strength renew.
4 Then in thy holy hill,
Before thine altar, Lord, . Our harp and song shall sound
The glories of thy word. Henceforth to thee, O God of grace,
A hymn of praise our life shall be. 79
And pray, and wish thy kind return;
'Tis all a scene of gloomy night.
Again, to our admiring eyes: 4 Till filled with light, and joy, and love,
Thy courts below, like those above,
To thy temple we repair,
Christ before the mercy-seat.
We through him are each, thy child;
Abba! Father! give us grace,
In thy courts to seek thy face.
Touch our lips, unloose our tongue,
Thee, the Lord our righteousness.
God of love, to our's attend;
Hear, for Jesus intercedes. w odt 81 . C. M. ve otel:
TARLY, O God, without delay,
Without thy cheering grace.
And they must drink, or die.
Through all thy temple shine:
That vision so divine.
Can our best passions move,
As thy forgiving love.
We'll bless our God and King;
And tune our lips to sing.

JESUS, where'er thy people meet, J There they behold thy mercy-seat; Where'er they seek thee, thou art found;
And every place is hallow'd ground. 2 Dear Shepherd of thy chosen few, :
Thy former mercies here renew; :
The sweetness of thy saving name. 3 Here may we prove the power of prayer,
To strengthen faith and banish care;
To things unseen, beyond the skies. , 4 Lord, we are weak, but thou art near;
Nor short tbine arm, nor deaf thine ear; 0, rend the heavens this favour'd hour, Let thousands feel thy saving pow'r.
Our souls for shelter flies;
When storms and tempest rise. 2 Our cheerful hopes can never die,
If thou, O God, art near;
And banish every fear.
Thy constant aid impart;
