HYMN 773

C.M.S 527 H.C 388 6s (FE 307)
"Lord, I have loved the habitation of 
Thy house, where thy honour dwelleth"
 - PS. 26:8

1.  WE love the place, O God, 

     Wherein Thine honour dwells 

     The joy of Thine abode

     All earthly joy excels.

2.  It is the house of prayer 

     Wherein Thy servants meet 

     And Thou, O Lord, art there 

     Thy chosen flock to greet.

3.  We love the sacred font 

     For there the Holy Dove 

     Pours out, as He is wont 

     The effluence from above.

4.  We love the word of life 

     The word that tells of peace 

    Of comfort in the strife, 

    And joys that never cease.

5.  We love to sing below

     For mercies freely given

    But oh! we long to know 
    The truimph-song of heaven.

6.  Lord Jesus, give us grace 

     On earth to love Thee more

     In heaven to see Thy face

     And with Thy saints adore.  Amen
