Psalm 48:2 (second Part Far As Thy Name Is Known)

Psalm 48:2. 10-14. Second Part
The beauty of the church; or,
Gospel worship and order.


Far as thy name is known
The world declares thy praise;
Thy saints, O Lord, before thy throne
Their songs of honour raise.

With joy let Judah stand
On Sion's chosen hill,
Proclaim the wonders of thy hand,
And counsels of thy will.

Let strangers walk around
The city where we dwell,
Compass and view thine holy ground,
And mark the building well.

The orders of thy house,
The worship of thy court,
The cheerful songs, the solemn vows;
And make a fair report.

How decent and how wise!
How glorious to behold!
Beyond the pomp that charms the eyes,
And rites adorn'd with gold.

The God we worship now
Will guide us till we die,
Will be our God while here below,
And ours above the sky.


(The end)

Not all his treasures can procureHis soul a short reprieve,Redeem from death one guilty hour,Or make his brother live.

These temples of his grace,How beautiful they stand!The honours of our native place,And bulwarks of our land.) In Sion God is knownA refuge in distress;How bright has his salvation shoneThro' all her palaces! When kings against her join'd,And saw the Lord was there,In wild confusion of the mindThey fled with hasty tear. When navies tall and proudAttempt to spoil our peace,He sends his tempests roaring loud,And sinks them in
