We love the place O God

Composer

Arranger

R. Mather

SATB Organ

Text

We love the place, O God,
   wherein Thine honour 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 sacred font;
   for there the holy Dove
to pour is ever wont
   his blessings from above

We love Thine altar, Lord;
   oh, what on earth so dear?
for there, in faith adored
   we find Thy presence near.

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

We love to sing below
   for mercies freely giv’n;
but, oh, we long to know
   the triumph song of Heav'n.

Lord Jesus, give us grace
   on earth to love Thee more,
in Heav'n to see Thy face,
   and with Thy saints adore.
