PSALMS AND HYMNS.
INTRODUCTION AND CLOSE OF WORSHIP.
Praise to our Creator. Ps. 100.
2 His sovereign power, without our aid,
3 We are his people, we his care,
Our souls and all our mortal frame:
4 We'll crowd thy gates with thankful songs;
5 Wide as the world is thy command,
Firm as a rock thy truth must stand,
Call to Worship. Ps. 95.
1 COME, Sound his praise abroad,
2 He formed the deeps unknown;
3 Come, worship at his throne,
Nor dare provoke his rod;
1 COME to the house of prayer,
The God of peace shall meet thee there, He makes that house his home.
2 Come to the house of praise,
3 Ye aged, hither come,
For ye have felt his love; Soon shall your trembling tongues be dumb, Your lips forget to move.
4 Ye young, before his throne,
5 Thou, whose benignant eye
6 Up to thy dwelling-place

Public Worship. Ps. 65.
1 For thee, O God, our constant praise,
20 thou, who to my humble prayer
Didst always bend thy listening ear,
3 Our sins, though numberless, in vain
4 Blest is the man, who, near thee placed, Within thy sacred dwelling lives; While we, at humble distance, taste The vast delights thy worship gives.

Surrounding the Mercy Seat.
1 FAR from mortal cares retreating, Sordid hopes and fond desires, Here, our willing footsteps meeting,
Every heart to heaven aspires.
Light celestial cheers our eyes;
Peace and pardon from the skies.
2 Who may share this great salvation?Every pure and humble mind; Every kindred, tongue and nation,
From the dross of guilt refined: Blessings all around bestowing,
God withholds his care from none; Grace and mercy ever flowing
From the fountain of his throne.
3 Every stain of guilt abhorring,
Firm and bold in virtue's cause, Still thy providence adoring,
Faithful subjects to thy laws, Lord! with favor still attend us,
Bless us with thy wondrous love; Thou, our sun and shield, defend us; All our hope is from above.
Gentiles brought into the Temple.
2 Though once estranged far,
3 To thee ourselves we join,
4 Here in thy house we feast
On dainties all divine;
And while such sweets we taste,
