Farewell to Dunkeld Cathedral

It's about time we left Dunkeld Cathedral - so here is one final view of this beautiful place.

We love the place, O God,
Wherin thine honour dwells;
the joy of thine abode
All earthly joy excels.

We love the house of prayer,
Wherin thy servants meet;
And thou, O Lord, art there
Thy chosen flock to greet.

We love the word of life,
The word that tells of peace,
Of comfort in the strife,
And joys that never cease.

We love to sing below
For mercies freely given;
But O, we long to know
The triumph-song of heaven!

Lord Jesus, give us grace
On earth to love thee more,
In heaven to see thy face,
And with thy Saints adore.

Well tomorrow I shall be inviting you to walk down Cathedral Street with me into the Village Square, where we shall gather round the Market Cross.

Another wonderful hymn to "Quam dilecta"!
