How blessed is this place, O LordAuthor: Ernest Edwin Ryden

1 How blessed is this place, O Lord,
Where thou art worshiped and adored;
In faith we here an altar raise
To thy great glory, God of praise!
2 Here let thy sacred fire of old
Descend to kindle spirits cold;
And may our prayers, when here we bend,
Like incense sweet to thee ascend.
3 Here gather us around thy board
To keep the feast with thee, dear Lord,
And when in faith our souls draw near,
May we discern thy presence here.
4 Here let the weary one find rest,
The troubled heart thy comfort blest,
The guilty soul a sure retreat,
The sinner pardon at thy feet.
4 Here thine angelic spirits send
Their solemn praise with ours to blend,
And grant the vision, inly given,
Of this thy house, the gate of heaven.
