Verse 1
We love the place, O God,
Wherein Thine honour dwells;
The joy of Thine abode
All earthly joy excels.

Verse 2
It is the house of prayer
Wherein Thy servants meet;
And Thou, O Lord, art there
Thy chosen flock to greet.

Verse 3
We love our Father's board,
Oh what on earth so dear?
Where faithful hearts, O Lord,
Still find Thy presence near.

Verse 4
We love the word of life,
The word that tells of peace,
Of comfort in the strife,
And joys that never cease.

Verse 5
We love to sing below
The word that tells of peace
Of comfort in the strife
The triumph-song of heaven.

Verse 6
Lord Jesus, give us grace
On earth to love Thee more,
In heaven to see Thy face,
And with Thy saints adore.
