O God of hosts, the mighty Lord,
How lovely is the place
Where thou, enthroned in glory, shew'st
The brightness of thy face.

My longing soul faints with desire
To view thy blest abode:
My panting heart and flesh cries out
For thee, the living God.

Much rather in God's house will I
The meanest office take,
Than in the wealthy tents of sin
My pompous dwelling make.

For God, who is our sun and shield,
Will grace and glory give;
And no good thing will he withhold
From them that justly live.
