1 Within Thy temple's sacred courts,
With loving and adoring thought,
We contemplate Thy grace, O God,
And all Thy deeds with mercy fraught.

2 Where'er Thy Name, O God, is known,
Where'er Thy glorious fame extends,
There also is Thy praise proclaimed,
Far as the earth's remotest ends.

3 Thy hand is full of righteousness;
Let Zion's gladness then be great,
And let her daughters sing for joy
And all Thy judgments celebrate.

4 Encompass Zion, count her towers,
And mark her strong defenses well;
Consider all her palaces,
And to your sons her glory tell.

5 This mighty God forever lives
Our God and Savior to abide,
And till our pilgrim days shall end
Will ever be our faithful guide.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
