Numbers 24:5–6 (Listen)
5 How lovely are your tents, O Jacob,
your encampments, O Israel!
6 Like palm groves1 that stretch afar,
like gardens beside a river,
like aloes that the LORD has planted,
like cedar trees beside the waters.
Hymn: TLH 572, st. 1,3: Praise to God, Immortal Praise
1. Praise to God, immortal praise,
For the love that crowns our days;
Bounteous Source of every joy,
Let Thy praise our tongues employ,
All to Thee, our God, we owe,
Source whence all our blessings flow.
3. Peace, prosperity, and health,
Private bliss, and public wealth,
Knowledge with its gladdening streams,
True religion’s holier beams,
Lord, for these our souls shall raise
Grateful vows and solemn praise.
