Hymn/Song Information

Lord tis a pleasant thing to stand




Lord, 'tis a pleasant thing to stand
In gardens planted by thine hand;
Let me within thy courts be seen,
Like a young cedar, fresh and green.


There grow thy saints in faith and love,
Blest with thine influence from above;
Not Lebanon with all its trees
Yields such a comely sight as these.


The plants of grace shall ever live;
(Nature decays, but grace must thrive;)
Time, that doth all things else impair,
Still makes them flourish strong and fair.


Laden with fruits of age, they show
The Lord is holy, just, and true;
None that attend his gates shall find
A God unfaithful or unkind.


---Alternative verses---


Lord, 'tis a pleasant thing to stand
In gardens planted by thy hand;
Let us within thy church be seen,
Like a cedars ever fresh and green.


Laden with fruits of age, they show
The Lord is holy, just, and true;
None who receive his grace shall find
A God unfaithful or unkind.
