How Sweet and Awful Is The Place Lyrics

(also called How Sweet and Awesome Is The Place)

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.
