469 (L.M.) Isaac Watts

Lord, 'tis a pleasant thing to stand

In gardens planted by Thy hand;

Let me within Thy courts be seen,

Like a young cedar, fresh and green.

There grow Thy saints in faith and love,

Blessed with Thine influence from above;

Not Lebanon with all its trees

Yields such a comely sight as these.

Laden with fruits of age, they show

The Lord is holy, just and true;

None that attend His gates shall find

A God unfaithful or unkind.
