Within Thy temple, Lord,
We on Thy mercies dwell;
Far as Thy Name is known,
There doth Thy praise excel:
Thy praises sound through every land,
And right Thy scepter shall command.

Let Zion’s mount rejoice,
Let Judah’s daughters praise
The Lord with cheerful voice,
For judgment He displays;
Go round the walls on Zion’s mount,
Go round her splendors to recount.

The towers of Zion tell,
Her palaces survey,
Mark all her bulwarks well,
And to your children say:
This God forever shall abide,
E’en unto death, our God and Guide.
