Within Thy temple, Lord, in that most holy place, We on Thy lovingkindness dwell, The wonders Thy grace. Men sing Thy praise, O God, Where'er Thy Name is known; By every deed Thy hand hath wrought Thy righteousness is shown.
Let Zion now rejoice, And all her children sing; Let them with thankfulness proclaim The judgments of their King. Mount Zion's walls behold, About her ramparts go, And number ye the lofty towers That guard her from the foe.
Observe her palaces, Mark her defenses well, That to the sons that follow you Her glories you may tell; For God as our own God Forever will abide, And till life's journey close in death Will be our faithful guide.
