The House of the Lord is a wonderful place
Tune : My Grandfather's Clock


The house of the Lord is a won-derful place
And it's here just a-waiting for you.
So come in and receive all the Lord has to give,
And you'll know that His ways a-re true.
There are bells to be rung,
There are hy-mns to be sung,
There are Bi-bles to read on the shelf;
But the best thing, that is for sure,
Is the pre-sence of Jesus himself.

The house of the Lord is a won-derful place,
Let Him wipe a-way all your tears.
Let Him strengthen you so you can fight the good fight,
Let Him ban-ish all of your fears.
Cast aside your old ways,
Sing to Jesus Christ in praise,
Build with Him a life a-new;
And you'll find that day b-y day,
Jesus' power is chang-ing you.

The house of the Lord is a won-derful place,
There is pardon for you and for me.
So come in and receive for-giveness of sins,
And let Him set your spi-r-it free.
Bring your gifts to the Lord,
Sing to Him with one accord,
Come and praise Him in ev-ery way;
So that when you go to meet the Lord
You'll survive the judge-ment day.

The house of the Lord is a won-derful place,
Come and join in Com-munion with Him.
Take the bread and the wine, take His body and blood,
And just let all His goodness flow in.
As we go from this place,
May we all be filled with grace,
May we fol-low His hol-y law;
May He dwell in us, here and now
And remain so for ever-more.
