i With one consent, let all the earth
To God their cheerful voices raise ;
2 Convinced that he is God alone,
3 O enter then his temple gate,
Thence to his courts devoutly press;
4 For he's the Lord supremely good;
is for ever sure ;

1 Come, thou Almighty King!
Help us to praise !
Ancient of Days!
% Come, thou all-gracious Lord !
Our prayer attend.
On us descend!
3 Never from us depart;
Love and adore.
For God's Blessing on Worship.
i LORD, from thine inmost glory send,
Within these courts to hide,
Securely by thy side.
2 May erring minds that worship here
Be taught the better way,
Be strengthened as they pray. 3 May faith grow firm, and love grow warm,
And pure devotion rise, While round these hallowed walls the storm
Of earth-born passion dies.
Invitation to the House of God.
Come to the house of prayer,
O thou afflicted, come;
He makes that house his home.
Ye who are happy now;
For ye have felt his love;
Your lips forget to move.
Come, bow; your voices raise ;
Who gives the power to praise.
In mercy looks on all;
And hear'st the mourner's call;
6 Up to thy dwelling-place
Bear our frail spirits on,
And heaven on earth be won.
Liv. R. S. COL.
Worship in Truth.
1 ALMIGHTY God! before whose throne
The secrets of all hearts are known;
2 Thou the vain homage wilt despise
Of heedless lips and wandering eyes,
3 O grant us, in this sacred hour,
To feel thy love, to own thy power, And, from the world's allurements free, To raise each thought in truth to thee.
1 O God! we praise thee, and confess
That thou the only Lord
By all the earth adored.
2 To thee all angels cry aloud;
To thee the powers on high,
Continually do cry,
