3 O enter then his temple gate,
Thence to his courts devoutly press ;
And still his name with praises bless. 4 For he's the Lord, supremely good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
16. Sincere Worship. (S. M.)
ALMIGHTY Maker God!
F1 How wond'rous is thy name !
Through the creation's frame!
Her humble homage pays,
Thine undissembled praise.
To her Creator too ;
And pay the worship due.
Else all my worship's vain; ..
Until 'tis form’d again.
The remnant of my days,
In sweet perfumes of praise.
At the Opening of Worship. (P. M.)
At thy feet we humbly bow;
In compassion now descend;
Tune our lips to sing tby praise !
That may joy and peace afford;
Full salvation to each heart.
Let the time of joy return;
Thee a gracious God and kind;
.Glory to God. (L. M.) 1 ALORY be to God on high! Hallelujah !*
U God, whose glory fills the sky;
• To be sung with, or without the Hallelujah,
2 God his soy'reign sway maintains ;
King o'er all the earth he reigns :
He does every want supply.
Praise him with the host divine;
Their all-gracious God is ours. 4 Happy who his laws obey!
Them he rules with milder sway;
Shall in heaven surround his throne. 5 Him, whose joy is to restore,
Him, let all our hearts adore:
19. For the Divine Presence. (C.M.)
Psalm 140. 13. 1 COME, thou desire of all thy saints,
Our feeble strains attend,
Low at thy feet we bend. 2 How should our songs, like those above,
With warm devotion rise!
Mount upwards to the skies!
In us the heav'nly flame;
Our hearts adore thy name.
4 Dear Saviour, let thy glory shine,
And fill thy dwelling here,
A heaven on earth appear.
· Praise to God. (P. M.) 1 SING Hallelujah! praise the Lord!
D Sing with a cheerful voice;
And in his name rejoice;
Your praises shall unite. 2 There we to all eternity
Shall join th' angelic lays ;
To God our Saviour's praise:
Delight in Public Worship. (L. M.) 1 How lovely, how divinely sweet, 11 O Lord, thy sacred courts appear! Fain would my longing passions meet
The glories of thy presence there.
3 Happy the men, whom strength divine,
With ardent love, and zeal inspires ;
With willing hearts, and warm desires. 4 One day within thy sacred gate,
Affords more real joy to me,
The meanest place is bliss with thee. 5 God is a sun; our brightest day
From his reviving presence flows:
To guard us from surrounding foes.
Profusely down, on souls sincere;
The happy fav’rites of his care.
How blest, divinely blest is he,
he Pleasures of Divine Worship. (L. M.) 1 C OD of my strength! to thee I cry,
U To Thee, my surest refuge, fly:
Thy truth afford its cheering ray! 2 Conduct me to thy hallow'd seat,
Where wisdom, truth, and mercy meet;
