How lovely are Thy dwellings, O Lord of hosts !
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the

Lord :
For the Lord God is a sun and a shield

The Lord will give grace and glory.
It is He that hath made us and not we ourselves :

No good thing will He withhold from them that walk

uprightly.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,

And into His courts with praise.
I was glad when they said unto me,

Come, it is our holy day;
Let us go into the house of the Lord,

Let us take sweet counsel together;
Let our feet stand within His gates;

Let heart and voice give thanks unto Him.
For the Lord is good, His mercy is everlasting,

And His truth endureth to all generations.
Blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee;

In whose heart are Thy ways.
Blessed are they who dwell in Thy house;

They will always be praising Ther.
Blessed be the temple hallowed by Thy name;

Pray for peace within its walls.

[merged small][ocr errors]

Peace to yoiing and old that enter there;

Peace to every soul abiding therein.
For friends and brethren's sake I will never cease to say ;

Peace be within Thee!
What though the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him,

And He dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
What though His way is in the deep,

And His knowledge is too wonderful for us;
Yet touched by the altar's living glow,

Our hearts burn within us,
And we try the wings that beat for His refuge,

And flee as a bird to the mountain.
Oh Lord, when we cry unto Thee from the deep,

And wait for Thee as they that wait for the morning,
Thou wilt have regard unto our supplications,

And the voice of our prayer Thou wilt not despise.
Oh House of the Lord's praise,

Peace be to them that love thee!

All. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, Deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the

power and the glory forever and ever. Choir. Amen.

-OR

All. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart

be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my Strength and my Redeemer.

Choir. Amen.

Oh Sing unto the Lord a new song!

Sing unto the Lord all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord; bless His name;

Show forth His salvation from day to day.
Declare His glory among the nations,

His wonders among all people.
For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;

He made the heavens and the earth and all that therein is.
Honor and majesty are before Him;

Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
Give unto the Lord, Oh ye families of the people,

Give unto the Lord glory and strength.
Give unto the Lord the honor due His name.

Bring offerings and come into His courts.
Oh worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Let the whole earth stand in awe of Him.
Serve the Lord with gladness.

Come before His presence with thanksgiving.
Say among the nations that the Lord reigneth.

He has established the world that it cannot be moved.
In His hand are the deep places of the earth.

The strength of the hills is His also.
The sea is His, for He made it;

And His hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down,

Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
For He is our God;
We are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His

hand.
Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad,

Let the sea roar and the fullness thereof,
Let the field be joyful and all that therein is,
Then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the

Lord,
For He cometh, He cometh to judge the earth;

To judge the world with righteousness and truth.
Lift up your heads, oh ye gates, be ye lift up, ye everlast-

ing doors,
And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory?

The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory.

All.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation. Deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.
