Hymn/Song Information

Come to the house of prayer O thou

Come to the house of prayer,
O thou afflicted, come;
The God of peace shall meet thee there,
He makes that house his home.

Come to the house of praise,
Ye who are happy now;
In sweet accord your voices raise,
In kindred homage bow.

Ye aged, hither come,
For ye have felt his love;
Soon shall your trembling tongues be dumb,
Your lips forget to move.

Ye young, before his throne,
Come, bow; your voices raise;
Let not your hearts his praise disown,
Who gives the power to praise.

Thou, whose benignant eye
In mercy looks on all;
Who see’st the tear of misery,
And hear’st the mourner’s call;

Up to thy dwelling-place
Bear our frail spirits on,
Till they outstrip time’s tardy pace,
And heaven on earth be won.

---Alternative verses---

Ye aged, hither come,
For ye have felt his love;
Soon shall ye lift a holier song
In fairer courts above..
