1 Let Zion sing her songs of praise,
And to the Lord, glad off'rings bring;
And ev'ry note of music raise,
To God her Saviour and her King.
2 This house which desolate had lain,
By the almighty hand of God!
Is now rebuilt and rais'd again,
And to its former state renew'd.
3 Thanks and praise be to the Lord:
Whose acts of mercy here are pass'd;
This house of pray'r again restor'd,
And holy worships now replac'd.
4 Here may the Lord with glory dwell,
And all his former work renew,
And here make known his gracious will,
And grant us grace to serve him too.
5 Here may his blessed word increase,
And with its former glory shine;
May thousands learn the way of peace,
And feel the work of grace divine!
6 The Lord with grace and mercy crown,
His Zion with his aid and pow'r!
And raise her walls when they are down;
And build his church for evermore.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #CLXV
