To Thy Temple I repair,
Lord, I love to worship there,
When within the veil I meet
Christbefore the Mercy-seat.
Thou through Him art reconciled,
I through Him become thy child;
Abba! Father! give me grace,
In Thy courts to seek Thy face.
While Thy glorious praise is sung,
Touch my lips, unloose my tongue,
That my joyful soul may bless
Thee, the Lord my Righteousness.
While the prayers of saints ascend,
God of Love, to mine attend;
Hear me, for thy Spirit pleads,
Hear, for Jesus intercedes.
While I hearken to Thy Law,
Fill my soul with humble awe,
Till Thy Gospel bring to me
Life and immortality.
While Thy ministers proclaim
Peace and pardon in Thy Name,
Through their voice, by faith, may I
Hear Thee speaking from the sky.
From Thine House, when I return,
May my heart within me burn,
And at evening let me say,
"I have walked with God to-day."
