We Love Thy House, O God


We Love Thy House, O God

31243, Hymns, We Love Thy House, O God, 247

We love thy house, O God,
Wherein thine honor dwells.
The joy of thine abode
All earthly joy excels.

It is the house of prayer,
Wherein thy servants meet,
And thou, O Lord, art there,
Thy chosen flock to greet.

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