The Blessings of Grace

Praise waits in Zion, Lord, for Thee, There we will pay our vow

Tune: ABRIDGE (Smith)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Praise waits in Zion, Lord, for Thee;
There we will pay our vow;
O Thou, the God that hearest prayer,
Before Thee all shall bow.

2 Against me my besetting sins
Prevail from day to day,
But Thou in Thy forgiving grace
Wilt take them all away.

3 O blest the man whom Thou dost choose,
And draw in love to Thee,
That in Thy sacred courts, O Lord,
He may a dweller be.

4 We surely shall be satisfied
With Thy abundant grace,
Yea, with the goodness of Thy house,
Of Thy most holy place.
