    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.
