|Scottish Metrical Psalm 65 verses 1 to 5 (6 stanzas)|
(1)Praise waits for thee in Sion, Lord:
to thee vows paid shall be.
O thou that hearer art of pray'r,
all flesh shall come to thee
(2)Iniquities, I must confess,
Prevail against me do:
But as for our transgressions,
them purge away shalt thou.
(3)Bless'd is the man whom thou dost chuse,
and mak'st approach to thee,
That he within thy courts, O Lord,
May still a dweller be:
(4)We surely shall be satisfy'd
with thy abundant grace,
And with the goodness of thy house,
ev'n of thy holy place.
(5)O God of our salvation,
thou, in thy righteousness,
By fearful works unto our pray'rs
thine answer dost express:
(6)Therefore the ends of all the earth,
and those afar that be
Upon the sea, their confidence,
O Lord, will place in thee.
