2 Here, in thine earthly house,

Our joyful souls have met;
Here paid our solemn vows,

And felt our union sweet.
For this our tongues thy love proclaim,
And chant the honors of thy name.
3 Thy truth, like ointment shed,

Hath breathed a choice perfume ;
Thy light, divinely spread,

Hath broke the darksome gloom.
For this our tongues thy love proclaim,
And chant the honors of thy name.
4 Now may we dwell in peace

'Till here again we come; And may our love increase

Till thou shalt bring us home.
Then shall our tongues thy love proclaim,
And chant the honors of thy name.

1 FROM worship, now, thy church dismiss

But not without thy hlessing, Lord;
O grant a taste of heavenly bliss,

And seal instruction from thy word.
2 Oft may these pleasant scenes return,

When we shall meet to worship thee;
Oft may our hearts within us burn

To hear thy word, thy goodness see.
3 And when these pleasant scenes are past,

To thee, our God, O may we come,
And meet th' assembled world at last,
In Zion, our eternal home.
