Representative Text

1 Let Zion's sons and Levi's tribe
And Israel's army move;
Come, now, prepare to offer prayer,
While in the tented grove.

2 Leave all the busy cares of life,
All worldly things behind,
That you may gather strength of soul,
And fortify the mind.

3 For Jesus surely will be here,
To fire our souls with love;
And we shall find our hearts inclined
To love the tented grove.

4 By faith we claim thy promise, Lord,
Thy faithfulness to prove;
Draw near to us, thou sinner's friend,
While in our tented grove.

5 Oh, sacred ground, delightful place,
Where God appears to man!
Like Moses, we behold his face
With but a vail between.

6 But when we rise to paradise,
To worship God above,
Then happier ground we all shall find
Than in the tented grove.
