Representative Text

1 There is within this heart of mine
A little church with sacred shrine,
And stained forever with the blood
Of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.

2 Here dwelleth God, the Father, Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One;
He is my soul's belov├ęd Guest,
And grants my heart true peace and rest.

3 This little church looks poor and old;
But being the abode of God
It has a glorious, peerless grace:
It is God's royal dwelling-place.

4 This little church, Lord, I commend
Unto Thy care, and pray: Defend
And shield it from calamity,
Dwell there now and eternally.
