Representative Text

1 Oh, it is joy for those to meet
Whom one communion blends,
Counsel to hold in converse sweet,
And talk as Christian friends.

2 'Tis joy to think the angel train,
Who 'mid heaven's temple shine,
To seek our earthly temples deign,
And in our anthems join.

3 But chief, 'tis joy to think, that he,
To whom his church is dear,
Delights her gathered flock to see,
Her joint devotions hear.

4 Then who would choose to walk abroad,
While here such joys are given?
This is indeed the house of God,
And this the gate of heaven!
