2 God is our Sun; he makes our day;
God is our Shield; he guards our way
From foes without and foes within. 3 All needful grace will God bestow,
And crown that grace with glory too ;
No real good from upright souls.
Within the temple of thy grace ;
And seek thy face, and learn thy praise. 5 Blest are the men whose hearts are set
To find the way to Zion's gate;
They lean upon their Helper, God. 6 Cheerful they walk with growing strength,
Till all shall meet in heaven at length;
J. TAYLOR. Acceptable Worship. 1 0, HOW delightful is the road
That leads us to thy temple, Lord !
And seek the treasures of thy word. 2 O heavenly treasures ! glorious light!
From ancient sages long concealed,
3 For thee, O Lord, our thoughts prepare
The sacrifice thy love demands — A soul repentant and sincere,
A grateful heart, and liberal hands.
This joy — to call thee mine;
To taste thy love divine.
I long to find my place,
And feel thy quickening grace.
No relish can afford;
To serve and please the Lord.
And praise thee while I live;
Such food or pleasure give.
To thee my spirit flies,
My cheerful hope relies.
My soul in safety keeps;
And he supports my steps.
TATE & BRADY.
Public Worship. Ps. 95.
1 0, COME, loud anthems let us sing,
Loud thanks to our almighty King ;
When our salvation's Rock we praise. 2 Into his presence let us haste,
To thank him for his favors past;
The praise that to his name belongs.
Is with unrivalled glory great -
Whom by his title God we call.
Her secret wealth at his command;
Subjected to his empire lies.
By the same sovereign right is his ;
6 0, let us to his courts repair,
And bow with adoration there;
J. Q. Adams.
1 COME, let us sing unto the Lord,
The Rock of our salvation sing, With joyful noise his praise record,
And thanks before his presence bring: Great is Jehovah, great our God,
Exalted above all his throne; The depths of earth obey his nod;
The mountain tops are all his own. 2 He made the sea; the land he made;
And both his matchless power reveal : O, be the Lord our God obeyed;
O, come, before him let us kneel :
His people, by his pastures fed :
O, hear his warning voice with dread.
The accepted Offering.
Wise, beneficent, and kind,
Flows thy goodness unconfined :
Or the busy walks of men,
2 Lord, what offering shall we bring,
At thine altars when we bow ?
Whence the kind affections flow;
By the melting eye expressed ;
Sorrow leaves the wounded breast ; 3 Willing hands to lead the blind,
Bind the wounded, feed the poor ;
Charity, with liberal store :
Thus to show our grateful mind,
Love to thee, and all mankind.
J. TAYLOR, Surrounding the Mercy-Seat. 1 FAR from mortal cares retreating,
Sordid hopes and fond desires,
Every heart to heaven aspires;
Light celestial cheers our eyes,
Peace and pardon from the skies.
Every pure and humble mind;
From the dross of guilt refined:
