Date: 29/07/2009 (Other)

Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn



HOW lovely are Thy dwellings fair!
O Lord of hosts, how dear
The pleasant tabernacles are,
Where Thou dost dwell so near!

My soul doth long and almost die
Thy courts, O Lord, to see;
My heart and flesh aloud do cry,
O living God, for Thee.

Happy who in Thy house reside,
Where Thee they ever praise!
Happy whose strength in Thee doth bide,
And in their hearts Thy ways!

They journey on from strength to strength
With joy and gladsome cheer,
Till all before our God at length
In Zion do appear.

For God, the Lord, both Sun and Shield,
Gives grace and glory bright;
No good from them shall be withheld
Whose ways are just and right.

Lord God of hosts, that reign's on high,
That man is truly blest
Who only on Thee doth rely,
And in Thee only rest.

John Milton, 1608-74
