5. c. M.

Praise to God.
1 WITH cheerful notes let all the earth

To Heav'n their voices raise ;
Let all, inspir’d with sacred mirth,

Sing solemn hymns of praise.
2 God's tender mercy knows no bound;

His truth shall ne'er decay ;
Then let the willing nations round
Their grateful tribute pay.

6. C. M.

Attendance on Public Worship. 1 How did my heart rejoice to hear

My friends devoutly say, “ In Zion let us all appear,

And keep the solemn day.”
2 I love her gates, I love the road;

The church, adorn’d with grace,
Stands like a palace built for God,

To shew his milder face.
3 Peace be within this sacred place,

And joy a constant guest!
With holy gifts and heav'nly grace

Be her attendants blest!
4 My soul shall pray for Zion still,

While life or breath remains ;
There my best friends, my kindred dwell,

There God my Saviour reigns !
