How good it is, Lord, to be here - Devotion
(Carl Johann Philipp Spitta/Richard Massie/
Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Devotion.

1. How good it is, Lord, to be here
  amid the congregation!
The beating heart and gushing tear
  bespeak our adoration.

2. Wherefore, ye tear drops, do ye flow?
  O heart, what means this beating?
The body rests from toil below,
  the soul her God is meeting.

Richard Massie, Lyra Domestica I, 1863, 92.
Translated from the German Mir ist so wohl in Gottes Haus - Andacht
of Carl Johann Philipp Spitta.
