Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 We love your house, O God,
the place where honour dwells;
the joy of your abode
all earthly joy excels.

2 We love the house of prayer,
where you your servants greet,
for you, O Lord, are there,
and with your chosen meet.

3 We love the word of life,
the word that tells of peace,
of comfort in the strife,
and joys that never cease.

4 We love to sing below
of mercies freely given,
but how we long to know
the triumph-song of heaven!

5 Lord Jesus, give us grace
on earth to love you more,
in heaven to see your face,
and with your saints adore.
