Hymn/Song Information

How pleasant how divinely fair O Lord of hosts Thy




How pleasant, how divinely fair,
O Lord of hosts, Thy dwellings are!
With long desire my spirit faints
To meet th’assemblies of Thy saints.


My flesh would rest in Thine abode,
My panting heart cries out for God;
My God! my King! why should I be
So far from all my joys and Thee?


The sparrow chooses where to rest
And for her young provides her nest;
But will my God to sparrows grant
That pleasure which His children want?


Blessed are the saints who sit on high
Around Thy throne of majesty;
Thy brightest glories shine above,
And all their work is praise and love.


Blessed are the souls who find a place
Within the temple of Thy grace;
There they behold Thy gentler rays,
And seek Thy face, and learn Thy praise.


Blessed are the men whose hearts are set
To find the way to Zion’s gate;
God is their strength, and through the road
They lean upon their helper God.


Cheerful they walk with growing strength,
Till all shall meet in Heaven at length,
Till all before Thy face appear,
And join in a nobler worship there.

How pleasant, how divinely fair,
O Lord of hosts, Thy dwellings are!
With strong desire my spirit faints
To meet th’assemblies of Thy saints.


Blest are the saints who sit on high
Around Thy throne above the sky;
Thy brightest glories shine above,
And all their work is praise and love.


Bless’d are the souls who find a place
Within the temple of Thy grace;
Here they behold Thy gentler rays,
And seek Thy face, and learn Thy praise.
