With Joy Thine Earthly
With joy Thine earthly courts we tread,
And here we worship Thee,
Who left the regions of the dead
Our thankful voices here we raise
To Him who reigns above;
We bring the tribute of our praise
For Thy redeeming love.
To Thee, O Lord, we join in prayer,
To Thee we raise our song;
We hear the precepts of Thy word,
Where all Thy people throng;
In the dear name of Christ our King,
We to the Father pray;
Contrite and broken hearts we bring,
On this most holy day.
Lord, meet us in this holy place,
Thy dwelling here below;
Refresh us with Thy richest grace,
And set our hearts aglow-
Aglow with sweet and fervent love
For all Thy goodness shown;
And raise us from this lower world
To Thy celestial throne.
