We will be singing Psalm 65 as we open worship this week. Sing along to prepare your hearts. (Here is the tune: https://hymnary.org/media/fetch/146811)
Praise waits for Thee in Zion!
To Thee vows paid shall be.
O God, of prayer the hearer,
All flesh shall come to Thee.
Iniquities are daily
Prevailing over me,
But all of our transgressions
Are covered o'er by Thee.
How blessed the man Thou choosest And bringest near to Thee, That in Thy courts forever His dwelling place may be. We shall within Thy temple Be wholly satisfied And filled with all the goodness Thy sacred courts provide.
O God of our salvation, Thou in Thy righteousness With awesome deeds and wonders Thine answer wilt express. O Thou in Whom confiding All ends of earth agree, And people who are sailing Upon the farthest sea.
Thy might has built the mountains; Power clothes Thee evermore, To calm the nations' clamor And still the ocean's roar. Thine awesome signs and wonders Fill distant lands with fear. Thou makest dawn and sunset For joy to shout and cheer.
Thy visits bring the showers; Thou dost enrich the field. God's river brims with water; Thou dost prepare earth's yield. Thou waterest earth's furrows; Clods break down 'neath Thy rain. Thou sof'nest earth with showers To bless each sprouting grain.
Thou crownest years with goodness; Thy steps enrich the ground. The desert pastures blossom; The hills with joy resound. The fields with flocks are covered; The vales with grain are clad; They all rejoice with shouting! They all with songs are glad!
