704. L. M. Watts. A House for God.
1 Where shall we go to seek and find
A habitation for our God?
A dwelling for th' Eternal Mind
Among the sons of flesh and blood?
2 The God of Jacob chose the hill
Of Zion for his ancient rest;
And Zion is his dwelling still;
His church is with his presence blest.
3 Here will he meet the hungry poor,
And fill their souls with living bread;
Here sinners, waiting at his door,
With sweet provision shall be fed.
4 |Here will I fix my gracious throne,
And reign forever,| saith the Lord;
|Here shall my power and love be known,
And blessings shall attend my word.|
