|LORD, I delight to find my place
Among Thy people saved by grace.
This house where heavenly kindness dwells
All earthly power and pomp excels.
|2||Here, where Thy saints Thy glory see,
Make firm my rest; my dwelling be;
Nor take me from such people dear,
For Thou Thyself art present here.
|3||Here then my feet shall loyal stand,
And prove the goodness of Thy hand,
And shall my voice in sweet accord
Praise Thee, my ever-gracious Lord.
|William Goode, 1762-1816‡|
