3945. Lord Jehovah, in Thy Temple

1. Lord Jehovah, in Thy temple,
Happy children we appear,
Bringing incense of thanksgiving,
For the love that led us here.
Hallelujah! praise Jehovah,
For the love that led us here,
Hallelujah! praise Jehovah,
For the love that led us here.

2. When on each returning Sabbath,
We return to seek Thy face,
Lord, accept the children’s worship,
Hear in Heav’n Thy dwelling place.
Hallelujah! praise Jehovah,
Hear in Heav’n Thy dwelling place,
Hallelujah! praise Jehovah,
Hear in Heav’n Thy dwelling place.

3. Thus, as in Thy earthly temple,
Day by day we wait on Thee;
In each heart Thy Spirit dwelling,
May we all Thy temples be.
Hallelujah! praise Jehovah,
May we all Thy temples be,
Hallelujah! praise Jehovah,
May we all Thy temples be.
