1  In Zion praise awaits you, Lord;
to you our vows we’ll pay.
2  To you all people will come near;
you hear us when we pray.

3  When we were overwhelmed by sins,
and guilt upon us lay,
You pardoned all our trespasses
and washed our guilt away.

4  How blessed are those you choose,
and bring within your courts of grace!
We’re filled with blessings in your house,
in your most holy place.

5  With awesome deeds of righteousness
you answer us, O God,
Our Saviour, hope of farthest seas
and all the earth abroad.

6  By strength and power you formed the hills.
7  You hushed the oceans’ voice;
You calmed the tumult of their waves
and stilled the peoples’ noise.

8  Those who inhabit distant lands
with awe regard your ways;
Where morning dawns and evening fades,
you call forth songs of praise.

9  You tend the land and water it;
you make it rich and good.
As you ordained, your streams are full
to give the people food.

10  You drench the furrows of the land;
you level off the ground.
You soften it with showers of rain
and make its crops abound.

11  You crown the year with fruitfulness;
your harvests overflow.
12  The grassland flourishes again;
the hills with gladness glow.

13  The pastures green with flocks are clothed,
the meadows covering.
The valleys deck themselves with corn;
they shout for joy and sing.
