We love The Temple Of The Lord

Representative Text

1 We love the temple of the Lord,
Which on the Rock is founded;
Here dwell the souls in sweet accord,
By grace and peace surrounded;
Here broken is the bread of life.
Here men may rest secure from strife,
While heaven is wide open.

2 O Father, thanks for festal days
Within Thy sanctuary!
We hear Thy voice, we learn thy ways,
We love with Thee to tarry.
Increase our faith and give us light
That we may know Thy Word aright
And reach our home in heaven.
