Foundations for his heav'nly praife:
But still in Zion loves to dwell." 2 His mercy visits ev'ry house

Where churches meet to praise and pray. 3 What glories were describ'd of old?
What wonders are of Zion told?
Thy fame shall Tyre and Egypt know 4 Egypt and Tyre, and Greek and Jew,
Shall there begin their lives anew:
The hill where living waters spring.
Of natives in his holy mount,
Twill be an honour to appear

And bow before the Lord,
And tremble at his word. 2 How terrible thy glories be!
How bright thine armies shine !
Where is the pow'r that vies with thee?
Or truth compar'd with thine?
On thy fupporting hand;
Move round at thy command.

The rolling billows sleep.
And the dark world of hell;
When Egypt durst rebel!
Yet wondrous is thy grace:
Invite us near thy face.

And light their steps furround. 2 Their joy shall bear their spirits up

Nor Satan dares condemn. 3 The Lord our glory and defence
Strength and falvation gives! Ifra'l, thy King for ever reigas,
Thy God for ever lives.

And I'll support my Son.
At my right hand shall fit;
And monarchs at his feet.
My promises are strong;
His seed endure as long.
