Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Who shall toward thy chosen seat

Who shall toward thy chosen seat

Author: James Merrick
Tune: CHARLES STREET
Published in 24 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Who shall to thy chosen seat
Turn in glad approach his feet?
Who, great God, a welcome guest
On thy hallow'd mountain rest?

2 He whose heart thy love has warm'd;
He whose will to thine conform'd,
Bids his life unsullied run;
He whose word and thought are one;

3 He who ne'er with cruel aim,
Seeks to wound an honest fame;
Nor to slander's tongue severe
Bends with easy faith his ear;

4 Who, from servile terror free,
Turns from those who turn from thee;
And to each, who thee obeys,
Love and honour ever pays;

5 What he swears, with stedfast will
Ever ready to fulfil;
Nor can bribes his sentence guide
'Gainst the guiltless to decide;

6 He who thus, with heart unstain'd,
Treads the path be thee ordain'd,
He, great God, shall own thy care,
And thy constant blessing share.
