471 (S.M.) Samuel Stennett

How charming is the place

Where my Redeemer, God,

Unveils the beauties of His face,

And sheds His love abroad.

Not the fair palaces

To which the great resort,

Are once to be compared with this,

Where Jesus holds His court.

Here, on the mercy-seat,

With radiant glory crowned,

Our joyful eyes behold Him sit,

And smile on all around.

To Him their pray'rs and cries

The humble saints present;

He listens to their broken sighs

And grants them all their wants.

To them His sov'reign will

He graciously imparts;

And in return accepts with smiles

The tribute of their hearts.

Give me, O Lord, a place

Within Thy blest abode,

Among the children of Thy grace,

The servants of my God.
