And hail with gratitude and joy,
The glories of the place. 5 O how I love Thy sacred courts. Where
prayer and praise arise! There, where Thy honor dwells, I find
My foretaste of the skies.
To walk Thy holy ways;
PSALM 27. (l.m.) Confidence in God in the midst of danger, and tri
umphant assurance of final Victory. 1 THOU my Salvation art, O LORD,
My light of truth Thy sacred word;
While Thine almighty arm is near?
My heart to terror ne'er shall yield;
Guarded by Thee, should wars arise. 3 One grand pursuit my heart inspires,
Long as I live, my soul desires
To view Thy beauty, O my God.
Relief obtain in all complaints :
5 Thy praise shall hence my pow'rs employ,
The grateful sacrifice of joy;
Let Hallelujahs swell the song. 6 To Thee I cry; LORD, hear
my voice; Thy answer makes my heart rejoice; “ Seek ye my face." O sacred word !
Thy face I'll seek, most gracious LORD. 7 Ah! hide not Thou Thy face from me,
Till I in bliss Thy glories see;
God of Salvation, to the end.
Should parents lose a parent's love.
More than supplied, my God, in Thee. 9 Oft had I fainted, but Thy name,
Faithful, unchangeable, the same,
And trust Thy sov'reign pow'r to save. 10 Wait on the Lord in ev'ry strait ;
Be strong in faith; in patience wait;
PSALM 27. II METRE.
(L.M.) I THOU, Lord, my safety, Thou my light,
What danger shall my soul affright?
2 One wish, with holy transport warm,
My heart bas form’d, and yet shall form ;
Thy sacred courts I may attend. 3 There may I find a sure abode,
And view the beauty of my God;
My secret refuge shall assig
Hast bid me seek Thy shining face,
Thee will I seek, all gracious Lord. 5 Should ev'ry earthly friend depart,
And nature leave a parent's heart;
Will be my Father and my friend. 6 Ye humble souls, in ev'ry strait,
On God with sacred courage wait;
PSALM 28. (c.m.)
Thine arm alone can save.
Forgotten in the grave.
My anxious fears repeat;
With ceaseless cries, I lift my hands
Tow'rds Heav'n, Thy mercy-seat. 3 Ungodly men care not for Thee,
They from Thy ways depart; Peace to their neighbour speak their lips,
With mischief in their heart.
Thy pow'r and skill declare;
Nor make impression there. 5 Who serve not God, while here on earth,
Wh, care not, LORD, for Thee,
Thy face shall never see.
Thy name be ever blest-
And granted my request. ang O Thou, my confidence, my strength,
My shield in all distress,
And Thy salvation bless.
His pow'r, and grace our theme;
Of all, who trust in Him. 9 LORD, save Thy people, bless Thy saints;
Till ev'ry danger's o'er;
Exalt them everzpore.
The Prophet calleth the Kings of the earth to give
glory to Jehovah, and to admire the magnificent
effects of his power.
Your grateful oft'rings hither bring,
His sacred pow'r declare.
Give glory to His name.
And spread abroad His fame.
The thunder's awful noise.
Man trembles at His voice.
4 See ! Lebanon's wide desarts shake; Behold! the oaks of Kadesh break;
The crashing cedars rend ! Praise His magnificence of pow'r; His glory speak; His name adore,
And in His temple bend. 5 Let oceans wide His wonders tell: At God's eommand the billows swell,
At God's command subside.
