Praise and Trust

Full Text

1 Within Thy temple, Lord,
In that most holy place,
We on thy loving-kindness dwell,
The wonders of Thy grace.
Men sing Thy praise, O God,
Where'er Thy Name is known;
By every deed Thy hand hath wrought
Thy righteousness is shown.

2 Let Zion now rejoice,
And all her children sing;
Let them with thankfulness proclaim
The judgment of their King.
Mount Zion's walls behold,
About her ramparts go,
And number ye the lofty towers
That guard her from the foe.

3 Observe her palaces,
Mark her defenses well,
That to the sons that follow you
Her glories you may tell;
For God as our own God
Forever will abide,
And till life's journey close in death
Will be our faithful guide.
