Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Great God, attend, while Zion sings|
The joy that from thy presence springs:
To spend one day with thee on earth
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth.
2. Might I enjoy the meanest place
3. God is our sun, he makes our day;|
God is our shield, he guards our way
From all th' assaults of hell and sin,
From foes without and foes within.
4. All needful grace will God bestow,
5. O God, our King, whose sovereign sway|
The glorious hosts of heav'n obey,
And devils at thy presence flee,
Blest is the man that trusts in thee.
