Come To The House Of Prayer O Thou Afflicted

 


 
 

Come to the house of prayer!

Oh, thou afflicted, come;
The God of peace shall meet thee there;
He makes that house his home.

Come to the house of praise!

Ye who are happy now,
In sweet accord your voices raise,
In kindred homage bow.

Ye aged, hither come!

For ye have felt his love;
So shall your trembling tongues be dumb,
Your lips forget to move.

Ye young, before his throne,
Come, bow;
your voices raise;
Let not your hearts his praise disown,
Who gives the power to praise.

Thou, whose benignant eye
In mercy looks on all,
Who seest the tear of misery,
And hear’st the mourner’s call,
Up to thy dwelling-place,
Bear our frail spirits on,
Till they outstrip time’s tardy pace,
And heaven on earth be won.
