I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me...



I was glad when they said unto me, 
Let us go into the house of the Lord.
Psalm 122:1




I was glad when they said unto me
Let us go to the house of the Lord
 Let us worship He who has set sinners free
 With humble devotion outpoured

I was glad when they said unto me
Lockdown restrictions have eased
Fifteen percent of capacity
Will keep the health-board kindly pleased

I was glad when they said unto me
You may go now and sit in the pews
Six feet apart (but with God's family)
Cherishing Mercy's Good News  

I was glad when they said unto me
Assemble together once more
Come, kneel at the cross of Calvary
Think of the anguish He bore

Honour the Maker of heaven and earth
Precious Savior of the soul
Fellowship sweetly, rejoice in the worth
 Of faith that makes believers whole

Ponder, with wonder His love, full and free
Delight at the sound of His Word
Sing, 'I was glad when they said unto me
Let us go to the house of the Lord'

To lift up glad voices in hymns dear and true
To lift the roof with worship's chord
I was so glad, oh weren't you too?
To go to the house of the Lord

(I wish this last verse was true...maybe next week?)

I was glad to see parking lots packed
Standing room only outside
As people gathered, starved for what they lacked
Worshipping Christ crucified
Worshipping Christ, unified
