With trust and holy fear,
Thy mercy and thy truth reveal,

8. - C. M. *TATE. Going to Church. Ps. 122. 1 O’Twas a joyful sound to hear Our tribes devoutly say, • Up, Israel, to the temple haste, * keep your festal day.” 2 At Salem's courts we must appear With our assembled powers, In strong and beauteous order ranged Like her united towers. 3 'Tis thither, by divine command, The tribes of God repair, Before his ark to celebrate His name with praise and prayer. 4 O, ever pray for Salem's peace; For they shall prosperous be, Thou holy city of our Goa. Who bear true love to thee. 5 May peace within thy sacred walls A constant guest be found — With plenty and prosperity Thy palaces be crowned. 6 For my dear brethren's sake, and friends No less than brethren dear, I'll pray, ‘May peace in Salem's towers A * guest appear.’
