His creatures for Himself designed ;
His people now is all mankind.

Through all eternity endure. 24

Earth has no sorrow that He cannot cure. 3 Here waits the Saviour, all gentle and loving,

H O Lord of Hosts, Thy dwellings are !
To meet the assemblies of Thy saints. , 2 My flesh would rest in Thine abode ;
My panting heart cries out for God :
So far from all my joys, and Thee ?
Around Thy throne of majesty ;
And all their work is praise and love. 4 Blest are the souls who find a place
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.
Till all shall meet in heaven at length;
S.M. S. STENNETT. 1787.
H Where my Redeemer God
And sheds His love abroad !
To which the great resort,
Where Jesus holds His court.
3 Here, on the mercy-seat,
With radiant glory crowned,
And smile on all around.
Each humble soul presents :
And grants them all their wants.
He graciously imparts;
The tribute of their hearts.
Within Thy blest abode ;
Watts. 1719. LOW did my heart rejoice to hear
1 My friends devoutly say, 'In Zion let us all appear,
And keep the solemn day!'
The church, adorned with grace,
To show His milder face.
The holy tribes repair ;
And sits in judgment there.
And while His awful voice
We tremble and rejoice.
And joy a constant guest !
Be her attendants blest!
6 My soul shall pray for Zion still,
While life or breath remains ;
There God, my Saviour, reigns.
We wait a visit, Lord, from Thee.
And kindle there a pure desire :
And feed our souls with heavenly love. 3 Bless'd Jesus, what delicious fare !
How sweet Thy entertainments are !
Redeeming grace, and dying love. 4 Hail, great Immanuel, all divine !
In Thee Thy Father's glories shine :
U And let His praise be great;
And bulwarks of our land.
A refuge in distress ;
Through all her palaces !
4 In every new distress
We'll to His house repair ;
And seek deliverance there. 5 Far as Thy name is known
The world declares Thy praise ;
Their songs of honour raise. 6 The God we worship now,
Will guide us till we die,
Thy earthly temples, are !
With warm desires to see my God. 2 O happy souls that pray
Where God delights to hear !
Their constant service there!
Who love the way to Zion's hill !
Through this dark vale of tears,
Till each in heaven appears :
Shalt thither bring our willing feet. 4 God is our sun and shield,
Our light and our defence !
We draw our blessings thence :
