1 Within your temple, Lord,
we on your mercies dwell;
far as your name is known,
there does your praise excel:
your praises sound through ev'ry land,
and right your scepter shall command.
2 Let Zion's mount rejoice,
let Judah's daughters praise
the Lord with cheerful voice,
for judgment he displays;
go round the walls on Zion's mount,
go round her splendors to recount.
3 The tow'rs of Zion tell,
her palaces survey,
mark all her bulwarks well,
and to your children say:
"This God forever shall abide,
ev'n unto death, our God and guide."
