Sweet the time, exceeding sweet!
When the saints together meet,
When the Saviour is the theme,
When they join to sing of Him.
Sing we then eternal love,
Such as did the Father move:
He beheld the world undone,
Loved the world, and gave His Son.
Sweet the place, exceeding sweet!
Where the saints in glory meet;
Where the Saviour's still the theme,
Where they see and sing of Him.
