I love thy church, O God

Representative Text

1 I love your church, O Lord!
Her saints before you stand,
dear as the apple of your eye
and graven on your hand.

2 Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways,
her sweet communion, solemn vows,
her hymns of love and praise.

3 I love your church, O God,
the people you have called,
the church our blest Redeemer saved
with his own precious blood.
