SS&S 213 How honoured, how dear, that sacred abode

SS&S  213 How honoured, how dear, that sacred abode

1. How honoured, how dear, that sacred abode,

Where Christians draw near their Father and God I

'Mid worldly commotion, my wearied

soul faints

For the house of devotion, the home of Thy saints


2. The birds have their home, they fix

on their nest ;

Wherever they roam, they turn to their rest :

From them fondly learning, my soul

would take wing ;

To Thee so returning, my God and my King.


3. O happy the choirs who praise Thee

above !

What joy tunes their lyres ! their worship is love.

Yet safe in Thy keeping and happy they be

In this world of weeping, whose strength is in Thee.


4. Though rugged their way, they drink, as they go,

Of springs that convey new life as they flow :

The God they rely on, their strength

shall renew,

Till each, brought to Zion, His glory shall mView.


5. Thou Hearer of prayer, still grant me

a place [courts of Thy grace :

Where Christians repair to the

More blest, beyond measure, one day

so employed, [lings enjoyed.

Than years of vain pleasure by world-


6. The Lord is a Sun, the Lord is a Shield;

What grace has begun, with glory is sealed.

He hears the distressed, He succours the just :

And they shall be blessed who make Him their trust.
