THE LORD DWELLING IN ZION




A glorious temple is the church,
And Christ the corner stone;
Jehovah has declared it such,
And there has fixed his throne.


‘Tis reared at infinite expense,
Adorned with heavenly skill;
Is not God’s chosen residence,
As once was Zion’s hill.


Survey its bulwarks, tell its towers,
‘Tis every way secured,
Against th’ assaults of hostile powers,
To blood and war endure.


Hither the saints with joy divine,
Their grateful offerings bring;
And here their tuneful voices join,
To praise th’ eternal King.


Here, Lord, my raptured soul would dwell,
Nor ever hence remove;
Here would I all thy wonders tell,
And feast upon thy love.
