#188: I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord!

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

I love Thy kingdom, Lord!

The house of Thine abode —

The Church our blest Redeemer saved

With His own precious blood.

2

I love Thy Church, O God!

Her walls before Thee stand,

Dear as the apple of Thine eye

And graven on Thy hand.

3

For her  my tears shall fall,

For her my prayers ascend —

To her my cares and toils be giv’n

Till toils and cares shall end.

4

Beyond my highest joy

I prize her heav’nly ways —

Her sweet communion, solemn vows,

Her hymns of love and praise.

5

Sure as Thy truth shall last,

To Zion shall be giv’n

The brightest glories earth can yield,

And brighter bliss of heav’n.
