I Love Your Kingdom, Lord

Verse 1

I love Your kingdom, Lord,
The house of Your abode,
The church our blest Redeemer saved
With his own precious blood.

Verse 2

I love Your church, O God!
Her walls before Thee stand
Dear as the apple of Thine eye,
And graven on Thy hand.

Verse 3

Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways,
Her sweet communion, solemn vows,
Its hymns of love and praise.

Verse 4

Sure as thy truth shall last,
To Zion shall be given
The brightest glories earth can yield,
And brighter bliss of heaven.
