Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 84
1. My soul, how lovely is the place
Where thy redeeming God
Unveils the glories of his face,
And sheds his love abroad!

2. 'Tis there the sparrow seeks a spot
Of safety for her nest;
'Tis in thy courts my happy soul
Has found her sweetest rest.

3. Blest are the souls that humbly wait
Within thy temple, Lord;
To them thy words of grace are sweet,
And strength and joy afford.

4. Come, Holy Spirit, from above
Descend, and fill the place;
Reveal to us the Saviour's love,
And sanctifying grace.
