Worship. Ps. 84. 1, 2

S. Stennett            S.M.

1
How charming is the place,
Where my Redeemer, God,
Unveils the beauties of his face,
And sheds his love abroad!

2
Not the fair palaces
To which the great resort,
Are once to be compared to this,
Where Jesus holds his court.

3
Here, on the mercy-seat,
With radiant glory crowned,
Our joyful eyes behold him sit,
And smile on all around.

4
[To him their prayers and cries
Each humble soul presents;
He listens to their broken sighs,
And grants them all their wants.

5
To them his sovereign will
He graciously imparts;
And in return accepts with smiles,
The tribute of their hearts.]

6
Give me, O Lord, a place
Within thy blest abode,
Among the children of thy grace,
The servants of my God.
