Hymn/Song Information

Blessed is the place where God And all




Blessed is the place where God
And all his charms displays;
His gracious smiles forbid our fears,
And gladden all our days.


Here humble saints a transport feel,
Beyond the joys of sense;
Nor could they while on Zion's hill,
E'er wish to move from thence.


A thousand sacred pleasures meet
Where Jesus deigns to dwell;
Then let us prostrate at his feet,
And there out wants reveal.


Before the throne would we appear,
There make our last abode
Nor should we then have ought to fear,
So near our Saviour God.


Thus while our minutes onward roll,
Our joys shall ne’er remove;
Lord, thy dear presence fills the soul
With ecstasy and love.
