PSALM 84. Third Part. P.M.
Longing for the house of God. (cont.)

  2    The sparrow for her young
   With pleasure seeks a nest,
   And wand'ring swallows long
   To find their wonted rest:
My spirit faints with equal zeal,
To rise and dwell among thy saints.
  3    O happy souls that pray
   Where God appoints to hear!
   O happy men that pay
   Their constant service there!
They praise thee still; and happy they
That love the way to Zion's hill.
  4    They go from strength to strength,
   Thro' this dark vale of tears;
   'Till each arrives at length;
   'Till each in heav'n appears.
O glorious seat, when God our King
Shall thither bring our willing feet!
  5    To spend one sacred day,
   Where God and saints abide,
   Affords diviner joy,
   Than thousand days beside:
Where God resorts, I covet more
To keep the door, than shine in courts.
  6    God is our sun and shield,
   Our light and our defence;
   With gifts his hands are fill'd;
   We draw our blessings thence:
He shall bestow on Jacob's race
Peculiar grace, and glory too.
  7    The Lord his people loves;
   His hand no good withholds
   From those his heart approves;
   From pure and pious souls.

PSALM 84. Third Part. P.M.
Longing for the house of God. (cont.)

  7 Thrice happy he, O God of hosts,
Whose spirit trusts alone in thee!

PSALM 85. First Part. L.M.
Waiting for an answer to prayer.

  1 LORD, thou hast call'd thy grace to mind,
Thou hast revers'd our heavy doom:
So God forgave when Israel sinn'd,
And brought his wand'nng captives home.
  2 Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made thy fiercest wrath abate:
Now let our hearts be turn'd to thee:
And thy salvation be complete.
  3 Revive our dying graces, Lord,
And let thy saints in thee rejoice:
Make known thy truth, fulfil thy word;
We wait for praise to tune our voice.
  4 We wait to hear what God will say;
He'll speak, and give his people peace:
But let them run no more astray,
Lest his returning wrath increase.

PSALM 85. Second Part. L.M.
Salvation by Christ.

  1 SALVATION is for ever nigh
The souls, that fear and trust the Lord;
And grace, descending from on high,
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.
  2 Mercy and truth on earth are met,
Since Christ the Lord came down from heav'n:
By his obedience so complete,
Justice is pleas'd, and peace is giv'n.
  3 Now truth and honour shall abound;
Religion dwell on earth again;
And heav'nly influence bless the ground,
In our Redeemer's gentle reign.
