Amherst

H.M. 6, 6, 6, 6, 8, 8

Billings

1.

Lord of the worlds above,

How pleasant and how fair

The dwellings of thy love,

Thine earthly temples are;

To thine abode my heart aspires,

With warm desires, to see my God.

2.

The sparrow for her young,

With pleasure seeks her nest;

And wandering swallows long

To find their wonted rest;

My spirit faints with equal zeal,

To rise and dwell among thy saints.

3.

O happy souls, that pray

Where God appoints to hear!

O happy men, that pay

Their constant service there!

They praise thee still; and happy they,

That love the way to Zion's hill.
