A DAY IN THE LORD'S COURTS




To Thy temple I repair;
Lord, I love to worship there
When within the veil I meet
Christ before the mercy seat.


I through Him am reconciled,
I through Him become Thy child.
Abba, Father, give me grace
In Thy courts to seek Thy face.


While Thy glorious praise is sung,
Touch my lips, unloose my tongue,
That my joyful soul may bless
Christ the Lord, my Righteousness.


While the prayers of saints ascend,
God of Love, to mine attend.
Hear me, for Thy Spirit pleads;
Hear, for Jesus intercedes.


While I hearken to Thy law,
Fill my soul with humble awe
Till Thy Gospel bring to me
Life and immortality.


While Thy ministers proclaim
Peace and pardon in Thy Name,
Through their voice, by faith, may I
Hear Thee speaking from the sky.


From Thy house when I return,
May my heart within me burn,
And at evening let me say,
“I have walked with God today.”


---Alternative verses---


To thy temple we repair:
Lord, we love to worship there;
There, within the veil we meet
Christ upon the mercy-seat.


To Thy temple I repair;
Lord, I love to worship there
When within the veil I meet
Thee before the mercy seat.


While thy glorious name is sung,
Tune our lips, inspire our tongue;
Then our joyful souls shall bless
Thee, the Lord, my Righteousness.


While Thy glorious praise is sung,
Touch my lips, unloose my tongue,
That my joyful soul may bless
Christ the Lord, my Righteousness.


While to thee our prayers ascend,
Let thine ear in love attend;
Hear us when thy Spirit pleads,
Hear, for Jesus intercedes.


While thy word is heard with awe,
While we tremble at thy law,
Let thy gospel’s wondrous love
Every doubt and fear remove.


From thy house when we return,
Let our hearts within us burn;
Then, at evening, we may say,
“We have walked with God to-day.”
