Lo We Tread On Holy Ground

Lo, we tread on holy ground,
Hearts elate with hope and joy.
Here may grace and truth abound,
Hymns of praise our lips employ.

Let us build a temple fair,
Zion’s walls in beauty raise;
God’s redeeming love declare,
Sing His name through endless days.

At His altar let us bend,
Make the willing sacrifice:
Lord, Thy mercy here extend
To our penitential cries.

Cleansing waters for the soul
From this found of life shall flow;
While the seasons swiftly roll,
All His saying pow’r shall know.

Sound the Gospel message old,
Saving men from death and woe;
Firmly to this faith we hold,
Join the battle with the foe.

Long as earth and time shall be,
May God’s people here be found;
Wondering eyes God’s glory see.
As men tread this holy ground.
