How charming is the place Where my




How charming is the place
Where my Redeemer God
Unveils the beauties of His face,
And sheds His love abroad.


Not the fair palaces
To which the great resort,
Are once to be compared with this,
Where Jesus holds His court.


Here, on the mercy seat,
With radiant glory crowned,
Our joyful eyes behold Him sit,
And smile on all around.


To Him their prayers and cries
Each humble soul presents:
He listens to their broken sighs,
And grants them all their wants.


To them His sovereign will
He graciously imparts;
And in return accepts, with smiles,
The tribute of their hearts.


Give me, O Lord, a place
Within Thy blest abode,
Among the children of Thy grace,
The servants of my God.


---Alternative verses---


To Him our prayers and cries
Our humble souls present:
He listens to our broken sighs,
And grants us every want.
