Where God resorts,
I love it more to keep the door
Than shine in courts.

4 O happy souls that pray &. God ap .. . hear ! O happy men that pay Their constant service there! They praise thee still; And happy they that love the way #. Zion's hill ! 5 They go from strength to strength Through this dark vale of tears, Till each arrives at length Till each in heaven appears. O glorious seat, Q When God, our King, shall thither bring - Our willing feet.

Delight in Public Worship. Ps, 84.

1 GREAT God, attend, while Zion sings
The joy that from thy presence springs.
To spend one day with thee on earth
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth.

2 Might I enjoy the meanest place
Within thy house, O God of grace,
Not tents of ease, nor thrones of power,
should tempt my feet to leave thy door.

3 God is our sun —he makes Qur day;
God is our shield—he guards our way
i., allosaults of heli and sin,
From foes without and foes within.

4 All needful grace will Go! bestow,
And crown that grace with glory too.

2. But we have no such lengths to go,
Nor wander far abroads:
Where'er thy saints assemble now
There is a house for God.
3 Arise, O King of grace, arise,
And enter to thy rest:
Lo, thy church waits with longing eyes
Thus to be owned and blessed.
4 Enter with all thy glorious train,-
Thy Spirit and i. word;
All that the ark did once contain
Could no such grace afford.

5 Here, mighty God, accept our vows;
Here let thy praise be spread;
Bless the provisions of thy house,
And fill thy poor with bread.
6 Here let the Son of David reign —
Let God's Anointed shine;
Justice and truth his court maintain,
With love and power divine.

16. S. M. *E. TAYLOR.

Call to the House of Prayer.

1 CoME to the house of prayer,
O ye afflicted, come:

The God of peace shall meet you there—
He makes that house his home.

2 Come to the house of praise,
Ye who are happy now ;

In sweet accord your voices raise,
In kindred homage bow.

3 Ye aged, hither come, For ye have felt his love:
