Happy in His House

"God remembered... God hearkened... God hath taken away my reproach" (Genesis 30:22,23).  "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD" (Psalm 122:1).  "They that seek the LORD understand all things... Happy is the man that feareth [the Lord] always" (Proverbs 28:5,14).  "For we are laborers together with God... ye are God's building" (1 Corinthians 3:9). 

There is a glad experience
To which the saved can all relate: 
It is the day that one repents,
When heaven's angels celebrate! 

The Lord has hearkened to our voice;
Our sin's reproach He took away.
How rightly do we now rejoice
To go into His house today! 

How happily we seek Him here
With brethren who exalt our Savior,
Who worship Him in godly fear  
And thank Him for His saving favor.  

Lord, in this happy habitation
Among the household of Your own,
We marvel at Your great salvation
And magnify Your name alone.
