755 (P.M.) Timothy Dwight

I love Thy kingdom, Lord,

The house of Thine abode;

The church our blest Redeemer saved

With His own precious blood.

I love Thy church, O God.

Her walls before Thee stand,

Dear as the apple of Thine eye,

And graven on Thy hand.

For her my tears shall fall;

For her my prayers ascend,

To her my cares and toils be giv'n

Till cares and toils shall end.

Beyond my highest joy

I prize her heav'nly 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 deliv'rance bring.

Sure as Thy truth shall last,

To Zion shall be giv'n

The brightest glories earth can yield,

And brighter bliss of heav'n.
