315. I love thy kingdom, Lord

S.M.

St. Thomas (Williams):

Aaron Williams, 1763

Timothy Dwight, 1800

DOXOLOGY

I love thy kingdom, Lord,

The house of thine abode,

The Church our blest Redeemer saved

With his own precious blood.

289

For her my tears shall fall;

For her my prayers ascend;

To her my cares and toils be given,

Till toils and cares shall end.

Beyond my highest joy

I prize her heavenly ways,

Her sweet communion, solemn vows,

Her hymns of love and praise.

Jesus, thou friend divine,

Our Savior and our King,

Thy hand from every snare and foe

Shall great deliverance bring.

Sure as thy truth shall last,

To Sion shall be given

The brightest glories earth can yield,

And brighter bliss of heaven.

To God, the Father, Son

And Spirit, ever blest,

The One in Three, the Three in One,

Be endless praise addressed.

Amen.
