1 Praise waits in Zion, Lord, for thee;
There shall our vows be paid:
Thou hast an ear when sinners pray,
All flesh shall seek thine aid.
2 Lord, our iniquities prevail,
But pard'ning grace is thine;
And thou will grant us pow'r and skill
To conquer ev'ry sin.
3 Blest are the men whom thou wilt choose
To bring them near thy face,
Give them a dwelling in thy house,
To feast upon thy grace.
4 In answ'ring what thy church requests,
Thy truth and terror shine,
And works of dreadful righteousness,
Fulfil thy kind design.
5 Thus shall the wond'ring nations see
The Lord is good and just;
And distant islands fly to thee
And make thy name their trust.
6 They dread thy glitt'ring tokens, Lord,
When signs in heav’n appear;
But they shall learn thy holy word,
And love as well as fear.
