35. Praise waits for you in Zion, Lord

1 Praise waits for you in Zion, Lord:
vows shall be paid to you.
O Lord, the One who hears our prayer,
all flesh shall come to you.

2 The sins I must confess prevail
strong over me each day;
but as for our transgressions, Lord,
you purge them all away.

3 Blessèd are they whom you will choose
and make approach to you,
that they within your courts may come
and always dwell secure.

4 We surely shall be satisfied
with your abundant grace,
and with the goodness of your house,
Lord, of your holy place.

5 O God of our salvation sure,
you, in your righteousness,
by awesome deeds to all our prayers
your answer, Lord, express.

6 Therefore the ends of all the earth
and those who dwell abroad
across the sea, their confidence
will place in you, O Lord.
