48. C. M. Jervis. Homage and Devotion.
1 With sacred joy we lift our eyes
To those bright realms above --
That glorious temple in the skies
Where dwells eternal love.
2 Thee we adore, and, Lord, to thee
Our filial duty pay;
Thy service, unconstrained and free,
Conducts to endless day.
3 While in thy house of prayer we kneel
With trust and holy fear,
Thy mercy and thy truth reveal,
And lend a gracious ear.
4 With fervor teach our hearts to pray,
And tune our lips to sing;
Nor from thy presence cast away
The sacrifice we bring.
