3 While Thy glorious name is sung,
Touch our lips, unloose our tongue;
Then our joyful souls shall bless
Thee, the Lord our righteousness.

4. While Thy ministers proclaim
Peace and pardon through Thy name,
In their voices let us own
Jesus speaking from His throne.

6 3 ORD ! when we bend before Thy throne, And our confessions pour, Teach us to feel the sins we own, And hate what we deplore.

When we disclose our wants in prayer,
May we our wills resign;

And not a thought our bosoms share
Which is not wholly Thine.

Let faith each meek petition fill,
And lift it to the skies;

And teach our hearts 'tis goodness still
Which grants it, or denies.

When our united voices strive
Their cheerful hymns to raise,

Let love divine within us live,
And lift our souls in praise.

Then, on Thy glories while we dwell,
Thy mercies we'll review,

Till love divine transported tell
Thou, God, art Father too !

ONG have we heard the joyful sound Of Thy salvation, Lord ; Yet still how weak our faith is found, And knowledge of Thy word

2 How cold and feeble is our love,
How negligent our fear;
How low our hopes of joys above,
How few affections there !

3 Great God! Thy sovereign power impart,
To give Thy word success;
Write Thy salvation in each heart,
And make us learn Thy grace.

4 Show our forgetful feet the way
That leads to joy on high;
Where knowledge grows without decay,
And love shall never die.

REAT Shepherd of Thy people, hear,
Thy presence now display:
As Thou hast given a place for prayer,
So give us hearts to pray.

2. Within these walls let holy peace
And love and concord dwell:
Here give the troubled conscience ease,
The wounded spirit heal.

3 May we in faith receive Thy word,
In faith present our prayers;
And in the presence of our Lord
Unbosom all our cares.

4. The hearing ear, the seeing eye,
The contrite heart bestow ;
And shine upon us from on high,
That we in grace may grow.

REAT Father of each perfect gift,
Behold Thy servants wait:
With longing eyes and lifted hands
We flock around Thy gate.

2 O shed abroad that royal gift,
Thy Spirit from above,
To bless our eyes with sacred light,
And fire our hearts with love.

3 With speedy flight may He descend,
And heavenly comfort bring;
And o'er our fainting souls extend
His all-reviving wing.

4. Blest earnest of eternal joy,
Declare our sins forgiven;
And raise with energy divine
Our raptured thoughts to heaven.

LORD, how joyful 'tis to see
O The brethren join in love to Thee;
On Thee alone their heart relies,
Their only strength Thy grace supplies.

2 How sweet within Thy holy place,
With one accord to sing Thy grace;
Besieging Thine attentive ear
With all the force of fervent prayer.

3 O may we love the house of God,
Of peace and joy the blest abode ;
O may no angry strife destroy
That sacred peace, that holy joy.

4 The world without may rage, but we
Will only cling more close to Thee,
With hearts to Thee more wholly given,
More weaned from earth, more fixed on heaven.

5 Lord, shower upon us from above
The sacred gift of mutual love ;
Each other's wants may we supply,
And reign together in the sky.

Psalm c. 4 I LL people that on earth do dwell, Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice; Him serve with fear, His praise forth tell, Come ye before Him and rejoice.

2 The Lord, ye know, is God indeed;
Without our aid He did us make :
We are His flock, He doth us feed,
And for His sheep He doth us take.

3 O enter then His gates with praise,
Approach with joy His courts unto ;
Praise, laud, and bless His name always,
For it is seemly so to do.

4. For why the Lord our God is good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
His truth at all times firmly stood,
And shall from age to age endure.
EFORE Jehovah's awful throne
Ye nations bow with sacred joy;
Know that the Lord is God alone,
He can create, and He destroy.

2 His sovereign power, without our aid,
Made us of clay and formed us men;
And when like wandering sheep we strayed,
He brought us to His fold again.

3 We’ll crowd Thy gates with thankful songs,
High as the heavens our voices raise;
And earth with her ten thousand tongues
Shall fill Thy courts with sounding praise.

4 Wide as the world is Thy command;
Vast as eternity Thy love;
Firm as a rock Thy truth shall stand,
When rolling years shall cease to move.
