    Verse 1
    O Lord our God in heaven
    Thy tabernacle here
    The dwelling of Thy love
    No beauty can compare
    How my heart longs
    For to ascend
    To Thy dwelling
    On high, my God

    Verse 2
    Joy fills the hearts of those
    Who worship where God chose
    Who go there oft to serve
    And to worship our God
    They praise Thee still
    Joy is the lot
    Of those who love
    Thy holy hill

    Verse 3
    And on from strength to strength
    In this miserable world
    Until they up ascend
    And appear before Thee,
    Glorious abode
    Where God shall guide
    Our footsteps till
    We reach that place

    Verse 4
    The Lord God is our shield
    Light and wall of defence
    His hands are filled with gifts
    We receive blessings there
    There is great joy
    Reserved for those
    Who trust in Thee
    O Lord, our God
