Sweet is the solemn voice that calls
1 Sweet is the solemn voice that calls
The Christian to the house of prayer;
I love to stand within its walls,
For Thou, O Lord, art present there.
2 I love to tread the hallowed courts
Where two or three for worship meet;
For thither Christ Himself resorts,
And makes the little band complete.
3 ’Tis sweet to raise the common song,
To join in holy praise and love;
And imitate the blessèd throng
That mingle hearts and songs above.
4 Within these walls may peace abound,
May all our hearts in one agree!
Where brethren meet, where Christ is found,
May peace and concord ever be.
