No place there is on earth more sweet

More rich with pure delight, more rich with pure delight,

Than where our Father's children meet

To worship Him aright,

To wor-ship Him aright,

To wor-ship Him aright.

With saints on earth to sing his praise,

Inspires with holy zeal:

With joy the note of song shall raise,

As we his presence feel.

In harmony our voices join

To sing our Saviour's name;

Bright angels too, their powers combine

To celebrate his fame.

Here, from the holy word of God,

"By inspiration given."

We learn the path our Saviour trod-

The way that leads to heaven.

Who can forsake assembling here,

While grace and truth declare,

If we in Jesus' name appear,

His presence shall be there?

If earth afford a joy so dear,

Where partings oft are known,

What heights of glory shall appear

Forever near God's throne!
