Christian Worship Devout Worship Of God.

Praise waits in Zion, Lord, for thee;
Thy saints adore thy holy name;
Thy creatures bend th’ obedient knee,
And, humbly, thy protection claim.

Thy hand has raised us from the dust;
The breath of life thy Spirit gave;
Where, but in thee, can mortals trust?
Who, but our God, has power to save?

Still may thy children in thy word
Their common trust and refuge see;
O bind us to each other, Lord,
By one great tie,-the love of thee.

So shall our sun of hope arise,
With brighter still and brighter ray,
Till thou shalt bless our longing eyes
With beams of everlasting day.
