To thin abode
To see my God.
With pleasure seeks a neft,
My spirit faints,
Among thy faints.
Where God appoints to hear!
They praise thee still;
To Zion's hill. 4 They go from strength to strength,
Thro this dark vail of tears,
O glorious feat,
4. There, mighty God, thy words declare
The secrets of thy will;
While far from thine abode;
My Saviour and my God?
And suffers no remove;
To dwell but where I love.,
And hear thy gracious voice,
Employ'd in carnal joys.
While Jesus is within,
Or live in tents of fin.
And the more boundless fea,
I'd give them both away.
PSALM LXXXIV. As the 148th Pfalm.
Longing for the house of God.
Ord of the worlds above,
L How pleasant and how fair
The dwellings of thy love,
ples are !
3. nappt fouls that pray
appy men that pay
They praise thee Nill;
1. Zo's hill.
The this dark vail of tears,
Where God resorts,
Than (hine in courts.
Our light and our defence;
He shall bestow
And glory too.
His hand no good with-holds
PSALM LXXXV. 1,-8. Firft Part. Waiting for an answer to Prayer; or, Deliverance
begun and compleated. ORD, thou hast call'd thy grace to mind,
Thou hast revers'd our heavy doom; So God forgave when Isra'l fion'd,
And brought his wand'ring captives home, 2. Thou hast begun to fet us free,
And made thy fierceft wrath abate:
And thy falvation be complete. 3
Revive our dying graces, Lord,
Make konown thy truth, fulfil thy word;
We wait for praise to tune our voice. 4 We wait to hear what God will fay;
He'll speak, and give his people peace :
Left his returning wrath increase.
Salvation by Christ.
The souls that fear and trust the Lord :
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.
Since Christ the Lord came down from hear'a,
Justice is pleas'd, and peace is giv'n.
Religion dwell on earth again,
In our Redeemer's gentle reiga. 4 His righteousness is gone before,
To give us free access to God:
wand'ring feet shall stray no more,
A general song of praise to God.
There's none hath pow'r divine;
Nor are their works like thine.
Their off'rings round thy throne;
