1 PRAISE waits for thee in Zion, Lord:
To thee vows paid shall be.
2 O thou that hearer art of prayer,
All flesh shall come to thee.
3 Iniquities, I must confess,
Prevail against me do:
But as for our transgressions all,
Them purge away shalt thou.
4 Blessed is the man whom thou dost choose,
And makest approach to thee,
That he within thy courts, O Lord,
May still a dweller be:
We surely shall be satisfied
With thy abundant grace,
And with the goodness of thy house,
Even of thy holy place.
5 O God, who our salvation art,
Thou, in thy righteousness,
By fearful works unto our prayers
Thine answer dost express:
Therefore the ends of all the earth,
And those upon the sea
Who dwell afar their confidence,
O Lord, will place in thee.
6 Who, being girt with power, sets fast
By his great strength the hills.
7 Who noise of seas, noise of their waves,
And people's tumult, stills.
8 Those in the utmost parts that dwell
Are at thy signs afraid:
The outgoings of morn and eve
By thee are joyful made.
9 Earth thou dost visit, watering it;
Thou mak'st it rich to grow
With God's full flood; thou corn provid'st,
When thou prepar'st it so.
10 Its ridges thou dost water well,
Its furrows down dost press;
Thou mak'st it soft with plenteous rain,
Its springing thou dost bless.
11 So thou the year most liberally
Dost with thy goodness crown;
And all thy paths abundantly
On us drop fatness down.
12 They drop upon the pastures wide,
That in the desert lie;
The little hills on every side
Rejoice right pleasantly.
13 With flocks the pastures clothed be,
The vales with corn are clad;
And now they shout and sing to thee,
For thou hast made them glad.
