To bless the soul of every guest; The man that seeks thy peace, And wishes thine increase,

I'll sing the honors of thy throne,
3 Fathers to sons shall teach thy name,

Psalm before Prayer. Ps. 95.
When his salvation is our theme,
2 With thanks approach his awful sight,
3 Earth, with its caverns dark and deep, Lies in his spacious hand;
He fixed the seas what bounds to keep,
4 Come, and with humble souls adore;
may the creatures of his power
