2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Zion, O God, in you rejoices
and greets you with her songs;
your courts resound with cheerful voices.
All praise to you belongs!
To you who hear our supplication
we come to pay our vow.
All people will in adoration
before you humbly bow.
2. When we are grieved by our transgressions
and overwhelmed by sins,
you blot them out in your compassion
and give us peace again.
How blest are those whom you have chosen,
whom you in love embrace;
within your courts, in you reposing,
they have a dwelling place.
3. O God, you in your habitation
will all your saints provide
with every blessing of salvation,
till all are satisfied.
By awesome deeds, so just and mighty,
you save us from our foe;
to those who walk with you uprightly
your justice you will show.
4. You are the hope of distant nations;
you by your strength and power
placed mountains on their firm foundations
and stilled the ocean’s roar.
Those who make far-off lands their dwelling
all tremble at the sight;
both dawn and dusk, in praise excelling,
with joy acclaim your might.
5. O God, you show the earth your favour,
the bounty of your hand,
for filled with water is your river,
enriching all the land.
You soften furrows with your showers
and bless the sprouting grain.
How great, O God, your love and power
throughout all your domain!
6. You crown the year, O Fount of blessing,
with gifts to cheer the land;
your goodness fills the earth, expressing
the wonders of your hand.
The hills rejoice. The meadows teeming
with flocks that skip and spring,
the golden grain, in valleys gleaming –
they shout for joy and sing!
