Hymn #444: Sweet is the solemn voice

Change to large font

1. Sweet is the solemn voice that calls
the Christian to the house of prayer;
I love to stand within its walls,
for you, O Lord, are present there.

2. I love to walk within the courts
where two or three for worship meet,
for it is there that Christ resorts
to make their holy bond complete.

3. How good to raise our common song!
Joining in holy praise and love,
we imitate the blessed throng,
uniting hearts and songs above.

4. Within these walls may peace abound;
may all our hearts in one agree,
and where we meet, where Christ is found,
may peace and concord ever be.
