Words

Thou, O God, art praised in Sion, and unto Thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem.
Thou that hearest the prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come.
Blessed is the man whom Thou choosest and
receivest unto Thee.
He shall dwell in Thy courts and shall be satisfied with the pleasures of Thy house, e’en of Thy holy temple.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose
mind is stay’d on Thee:
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace because
he trusteth in Thee.
Trust ye in the Lord for ever,
for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.

Let the people praise Thee, O God, yea,
let all the people praise Thee.
Then shall the earth bring forth her increase:
and God shall give us His blessing.

Words Psalm 65 vv. 1–2, 4
Isaiah 26 vv. 3–4
