I Love Thy Kingdom Lord

Verse 1
I love Thy kingdom Lord
The house of Thine abode
The church our blest Redeemer saved
With His own precious blood

Verse 2
I love Thy church O God
Her walls before Thee stand
Dear as the apple of Thine eye
And graven on Thy hand

Verse 3
For her my tears shall fall
For her my prayers ascend
To her my cares and toils be giv'n
Till toils and cares shall end

Verse 4
Beyond my highest joy
I prize her heavenly ways
Her sweet communion solemn vows
Her hymns of love and praise

Verse 5
Sure as Thy truth shall last
To Zion shall be given
The brightest glories earth can yield
And brighter bliss of heaven

Verse 6
Jesus Thou Friend divine
To Zion shall be given
Thy hand from every snare and foe
Shall great deliv'rance bring

Verse 7
I love Your church O God
The people You have called
The church our blest Redeemer
Saved with His own precious blood
