5 O Lord of hosts, thou God of grace! How blest, divinely blest, is he,
Who trusts thy love and seeks thy face, And fixes all his hopes on thee.
The Pleasure of Public Worship. Ps. 84.
2 Blest are the saints who sit on high,
3 Blest are the souls that find a place
4 Blest are the men whose hearts are set
God is their strength; and through the road They lean upon their helper, God.
5 Cheerful they walk with growing strength, Till all shall meet in heaven at length; Till all before thy face appear,
And join in nobler worship there.
Longing for the House of God. Ps. 84.
My heart aspires,
2 The sparrow for her young
To rise and dwell
30 happy souls that pray
Their constant service there!
And happy they
That love the way
To Zion's hill!
4 They go from strength to strength, Through this dark vale of tears, Till each arrives at length,
Till each in heaven appears:
O glorious seat,
5 The Lord his people loves;
God present in his Churches. Ps. 84.
1 My soul, how lovely is the place
2 There the great Monarch of the skies
3 There, mighty God, thy words declare
4 My heart and flesh cry out for thee,
When shall I tread thy courts, and see My Saviour and my God?
5 Could I command the spacious land,
For one blest hour at thy right hand
Going to Church. Ps. 122.
1 How did my heart rejoice to hear
And keep the solemn day!"
2 I love her gates, I love the road;
The church, adorned with grace,
3 Up to her courts, with joys unknown,
The Son of David holds his throne,
4 Peace be within this sacred place,
With holy gifts, and heavenly grace,
5 My soul shall pray for Zion still,
The House of God.
1 Lo, God is here! let us adore,
2 Lo, God is here! him day and night
3 Being of beings! may our praise

Engagedness in Devotion.
1 LORD, before thy presence come,
2 Wandering thoughts and languid powers
3 At the portals of thine house,
