4 While in thy house of prayer we kneel
With trust and holy fear, -
Thy mercy and thy truth reveal,
And lend a gracious ear,
5 With fervor teach our hearts to pray,
And tune our lips to sing; -
Nor from thy presence cast away
The sacrifice we bring.

1 O’Twas a joyful sound to hear Our tribes devoutly say, • Up, Israel, to the temple haste, Tod 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 otent guest appear.’
