His ark was settled there;

There is a house for God.

3 Here, mighty God! accept our vows;
Here let Thy praise be spread.
Bless the provisions of Thy house,
And fill Thy poor with bread.

4 Here let the Son of David reign,
Let God's Anointed shine;
Justice and truth His court maintain,
With love and pow'r divine.
