1. I was glad, O, so glad, when they said unto me, "Let us go unto the house of the Lord,"
For a day in His courts is far better to be than a thousand away from God;
Singing praise, in the great congregation, to Eternal God, our Creator.
I was glad, O, so glad, when they said unto me, "Let us go unto the House of the Lord"
2. As a fountain of tears, I had poured out my soul when derided by doubts and oppressed.
I had gone, with the people who kept Holy day, to the House of God with joy and praise.
Why, O then, be cast down, O my soul, And why the disquiet within?
Hope and healing and health are from Thee, O, my God, loving kindness and mercy and truth.
3. I commune with my soul, making diligent search; I remember my song in the night;
My soul thirsts for Thy trust as in dry desert lands, for Thy power and Thy glory to come.
From a horrible pit He delivered, out of miry clay upon a rock;
Gave a song that is new, even praise to our God, seeing many shall trust in the Lord.
