Hymn/Song Information

How lovely are thy tents O Lord

How lovely are thy tents,
O Lord!
Where'er thou choosest
to record
Thy name, or place
thy house of prayer,
My soul outflies
the angel-choir,
And faints, o'erpowered
with strong desire,
To meet thy special
presence there.

My heart and flesh
cry out for God;
There would I fix
my soulís abode,
As birds that in
the altars nest;
There would I all
my young ones bring,
An offering to
my God and King,
And in Thy courts
for ever rest.

Happy the men
to whom 'tis given
To dwell within
that gate of heaven,
And in thy house
record thy praise;
Whose strength
and confidence thou art,
Who feel thee, Saviour,
in their heart,
The Way, the Truth,
the Life of grace:

Who, passing through
the mournful vale,
Drink comfort from
the living well,
That flows replenished
from above;
From strength to strength
advancing here,
Till all before
their God appear,
And each receives
the crown of love.

Better a day thy courts within
Than thousands
in the tents of sin;
How base the noblest
pleasures there!
How great the
weakest child of thine!
His meanest task
is all divine,
And kings and priests
thy servants are.

The Lord protects
and cheers his own,
Their light and strength,
their shield and sun:
He shall both grace
and glory give:
Unlimited his
bounteous grant;
No real good they
e'er shall want;
All, all is theirs,
who righteous live.

O Lord of hosts,
how blest is he
Who steadfastly
believes in thee!
He all thy promises
shall gain:
The soul that on
thy love is cast
Thy perfect love
on earth shall taste,
And soon with thee
in glory reign.
