In the church of Jesus there is love for you

In the church of Jesus there is love for you,
Love most pure and tender, love most deep and true;
Why should you be lonely, why for friendship sigh,
When the church of Jesus has a full supply?
In the church of Jesus there is life for you,
Warm as summer sunshine, sweet as morning dew;
Why should you be fearful, why take anxious thought,
Since the church of Jesus cares for those He bought?
In the church of Jesus there is work for you;
Such as even angels might rejoice to do;
Why stand idly sighing for some life work grand,
While the church of Jesus seeks your reaping hand?
In the church of Jesus there’s a place for you;
Glorious, bright, and joyous, right and peaceful too;
Why then like a wand’rer, roam with weary pace,
If the church of Jesus holds for you a place.

There is warm and tender love, there is a “paid for” life and there is work that even angels long to do; all of this is in the church life; the place we want to be.

I so exited to realize that I also have a place in the Church of Jesus. Praise the Lord we are at home now, because Jesus holds for us a place in His Church.

I love this song. It captures the feeling of the church perfectly.
