Recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford
Written by Ernie Ford and Jack Fascinato
[C]I love Thy kingdom [G7]Lord
[C]The house of Thine [G7]abode
The [C]church our [G7]blest Re[C]deemer [G7]saved
With [F]His own [G7]precious [C]blood
I love Thy church oh [G7]God
[C]Her walls before Thee [G7]stand
Dear [C]as the [G7]apple [C]of Thine [G7]eye
And [F]graven [G7]on Thy [C]hand
For her my tears shall [G7]fall
For [C]her my prayers [G7]ascend
To [C]her my [G7]cares and [C]toils be [G7]given
Till [F]toils and [G7]cares shall [C]end
(Beyond my highest [G7]joy
I [C]prize her heavenly [G7]ways
Her [C]sweet communion solemn [G7]vows
Her [F]hymns of [G7]love and [C]praise)
Sure as thy truth shall [G7]last
[C]To Zion shall be [G7]given
The [C]brightest [G7]glories [C]earth can [G7]yield
And [F]brighter [G7]bliss of [C]heaven
