1 Here in the house of the Lord
I find the narrow way,
And here I find the blessed light
That shines for all, today;
Here I see his lifted cross,
To which in faith I cling,
And thus, believing in his name,
My heart will ever sing.

Refrain:
I was glad, I was glad,
I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go, let us go,
Let us go into the house of the Lord.

2 Here in the house of the Lord
I find the hope divine,
And with my sins all blotted out,
I know this hope is mine;
Here I find this safe retreat,
The shelter of his wing,
And thus, rejoicing in his love,
My heart will ever sing. [Refrain]

3 Here in the house of the Lord
I’m always glad to be,
For here I find the sinner’s friend,
Who died to ransom me;
Here I gave my earthly life
To serve the Lord and King,
And thus, with faith to guide me on,
My heart will ever sing. [Refrain]
