How Needful and How Pleasant Don Fortner

(Tune: #53 How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds CM)



  1. How needful and how pleasant is the temple of our God,

The local church where needy souls gather and worship God.


  1. Blest are the souls who find their place among assembled saints,

Where Christ is pleased to show His face and lift the hearts that faint.


  1. Here God dispenses His mercy and gives the strength we need.

Here by His Spirit, through his Word, His hungry child He feeds.
