1 Is this thy Zion’s gate, O Lord,
And art thou here today?
And may we come and hear thy word,
And sing thy praise and pray?
In loving tones the answer comes,
So joyous and so free
“Blessed are they that dwell in thy house”—
And— “they shall prosper that love thee.”
2 May we approach thy mercy seat,
And be accepted there?
And lay our sorrows at thy feet
In confidence and prayer? [Refrain]
3 May we put other thoughts away,
And strict attention give
To what the word of truth may say,
That we may hear and live? [Refrain]Source: Wondrous Love: A Collection of Songs and Services for Sunday Schools #8
