Isaac Watts, 1707

Verse 1

How sweet and awful is the place

With Christ within the doors,

While everlasting love displays

The choicest of her stores!

Verse 2

Here every kindness of our God

With soft compassion rolls;

Here peace and pardon bought with blood

Is food for dying souls.

Verse 3

While all our hearts and all our songs

Join to admire the feast,

Each of us cry, with thankful tongues,

“Lord, why was I a guest?

Verse 4

“Why was I made to hear Thy voice,

And enter while there’s room,

When thousands make a wretched choice,

And rather starve than come?”

Verse 5

‘Twas the same love that spread the feast

That sweetly drew us in;

Else we had still refused to taste,

And perished in our sin.

Verse 6

Pity the nations, O our God!

Constrain the earth to come;

Send Thy victorious Word abroad,

And bring the strangers home.

Verse 7

We long to see Thy churches full,

That all the chosen race

May with one voice, and heart and soul,

Sing Thy redeeming grace.
