Within Thy House O Lord This Day

Within Thy house, O Lord, this day,
Once more we meet to learn Thy way;
With rev’rence and with godly fear
We in Thy temple now appear.

Thy mercy, Lord, hath crowned our days,
And follows us in all our ways;
O fill our hearts with Thy true love,
And raise our thoughts to things above.

Jesus, dear Friend, on Thee we call,
Thou art our strength, our all in all;
O let us now Thy presence feel,
While at the mercy-seat we kneel.
