373. Within Your Temple, Lord

1 Within your temple, Lord,
We on your mercies dwell;
Far as your Name is known,
There does your praise excel:
Your praises sound through ev'ry land,
And right Your scepter shall command.

2 Let Zion's mount rejoice,
Let Judah's daughters praise
The Lord with cheerful voice,
For judgment he displays;
Go round the walls on Zion's mount,
Go round her splendors to recount.

3 The tow'rs of Zion tell,
Her palaces survey,
Mark all her bulwarks well,
And to your children say:
"This God for ever shall abide,
Ev'n unto death, our God and guide."
