And worship at His feet; Judgment and truth are His abode,
And holiness His seat.
Moses and Aaron join,
Extol His pow'r divine. 4 Ye servants of the LORD, Who call'd

His acts of grace proclaim.

Omnipotent to save.
In Zion, His abode:
Exalt the Lord our God,

LL people that on earth do dweli,
Sing to the Lord with cheerful voice;
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.
His mercy is for ever sure;
And shall from age to age endure.
PSALM 100. III. Metre.
III. Metre. (L. M.) 1 BEFORE Jehovah's awful throne,
Yė nations, bow with sacred joy; Know that the Lord is God alone,
He can create, and He destroy.
Made us of clay, and form'd us men;
He brought us to His fold again.
High as the heav'ns 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:
King David advanced to the throne of Israel, de
elares his pious purpose of just and holy govern
ment, and the qualifications of his household. I MY song shall be of mercy, Lord,
Thy judgments shall my soul record; To Thee I'll sing with grateful voice,
I'll gaze, and tremble, and rejoice.
And make my heart Thy blest abode ?
With conscience clear, and heart upright. 3 The faithful in my house shall dwell,
Wit, me Thy loving-kinduess tell;
The slanderous tongue, the froward heart. 4 The Church below, in peace and love,
Shall emulate the Church above;
