Hymn 235
Pleasant are Thy courts above

1. Pleasant are Thy courts above, In the land of light and love Pleasant are Thy courts below, In this land of sin and woe, O my spirit lings and faints For the converse of Thy saints For the brightness of Thy face, King of glory, God of grace. 2. Happy birds that sing and fly Round Thy altars, O Most High! Happier souls that find a rest In a heavenly Fatherís breast Like the wandering dove that found No repose on earth around, They can to their ark repair, And enjoy it ever there. 3. Happy souls! their praises flow Even in this vale of woe; Waters in the desert rise, Manna feeds them from the skies; On they go from strength to strength till they reach Thy throne at length At Thy feet adoring fall, Who has led them safe through all. 4. Lord, be mine this prize to win; Guide me through a world of sin; Keep me by Thy saving grace Give me at Thy side a place. Sun and shield alike Thou art; Guide and guard my erring heart Grace and glory flow from Thee Shower, O shower them, Lord on me.
