Lord, at thy sacred feet

Representative Text

1 Lord, at thy sacred feet
Joyful would we appear;
Within thy earthly temple meet,
To see thy glory here.

2 We come to worship thee,
For thou art God alone;
In humble prayer to bend the knee,
Before thy holy throne.

3 Thy word is our delight,
Thy truth will make us free;
'Tis from thyself a heavenly light,
It leads our souls to thee.

4 Thy goodness we behold,
While in thy presence, Lord'
Thy wondrous truth and love unfold,
The treasures of thy word.

5 In all our meetings here,
Our souls are blessed with good;
Thou wilt to waiting minds be near,
And give thy children food!

6 So will we render praise
To thee, the God of love;
With pleasure walk in all thy ways,
Till we shall meet above.
