Call to Worship. Ps. 95.
1 COME, sound his praise abroad,
2 He formed the deeps unknown;
3 Come, worship at his throne,
4 To-day attend his voice,
Nor dare provoke his rod;
1 COME to the house of prayer,
The God of peace shall meet thee there, He makes that house his home.
2 Come to the house of praise,
3 Ye aged, hither come,
For ye have felt his love; Soon shall your trembling tongues be dumb, Your lips forget to move.
4 Ye young, before his throne,
5 Thou, whose benignant eye
6 Up to thy dwelling-place

Public Worship. Ps. 65.
1 For thee, O God, our constant praise,
20 thou, who to my humble prayer
Didst always bend thy listening ear,
3 Our sins, though numberless, in vain
4 Blest is the man, who, near thee placed, Within thy sacred dwelling lives; While we, at humble distance, taste The vast delights thy worship gives.

Surrounding the Mercy Seat.
1 FAR from mortal cares retreating, Sordid hopes and fond desires, Here, our willing footsteps meeting,
Every heart to heaven aspires. From the Fount of glory beaming,
Light celestial cheers our eyes; Mercy from above proclaiming
Peace and pardon from the skies.
2 Who may share this great salvation?— Every pure and humble mind; Every kindred, tongue and nation,
From the dross of guilt refined: Blessings all around bestowing,
God withholds his care from none; Grace and mercy ever flowing
From the fountain of his throne.
3 Every stain of guilt abhorring,
Firm and bold in virtue's cause, Still thy providence adoring,
Faithful subjects to thy laws, Lord! with favor still attend us, Bless us with thy wondrous love; Thou, our sun and shield, defend us; All our hope is from above,
Gentiles brought into the Temple. 1 GREAT Father of mankind, We bless that wondrous grace, Which could for Gentiles find Within thy courts a place. How kind the care Our God displays, For us to raise A house of prayer!
2 Though once estranged far,
To thee we come,
3 To thee ourselves we join,
4 Here in thy house we feast
And while such sweets we taste,
Incense shall rise
5 May all the nations throng

7. Pleasure and Advantage of Divine Worship. Ps. 84. 1 HAPPY the men, whom strength divine With ardent love and zeal inspires! Whose steps to thy blest way incline, With willing hearts and warm desires.
2 Still they pursue the painful road;
3 God is a sun; our brightest day
4 He pours his kindest blessings down,
