I love thy king-dom, Lord,
The house of thine a -bode,

I love thy church, O God!
Her walls be-fore thee stand,
Dear as the apple of thine eye
And graven on thy hand.

The church our blest Redeemer saved,
With his own precious blood.

For her my tears shall fall,
For her my prayers ascend;
To her my cares and toils be given,
Till toils and cares shall end:
Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways,
Her sweet communion, solemn vows
Her hymns of love and praise.

Jesus, thou friend divine,
Our Saviour, and our King,
Thy hand from every snare and foe
Shall great deliverance bring.
Sure as thy truth shall last,
To Zion shall be given
The brightest glories earth can yield,
And brighter bliss of heaven.
