To make this daty our delight. 2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem,
And gathers nations to his name:

A deep where all our thoughts are drown'd, 4 Great is our Lord, and great his might:
And all his glories infinite;
And treads the wicked to the dust. 5 His saints are lovely in his sight;
He views his children with delight;

And God of Love!

That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
The sun to rule the day;
And all the stars obey.
That fill the earth with food:
And then pronounc'd them good. 4 Lord, how thy wonders are display'd,
Where'er I turn mine eye;
Or gaze upon the sky!
Are subject to thy care:
But God is present there.
He keeps me with his eye ;
Who is for ever nigh?
