The original Trinity Hymnal was published in 1961 and enjoyed wide use in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and other Reformed churches.
Original Trinity Hymnal, #313
To thy temple I repair;
Lord, I love to worship there,
When within the veil I meet
Christ before the mercy-seat.
While thy glorious praise is sung,
Touch my lips, unloose my tongue,
That my joyful soul may bless
Thee, the Lord my Righteousness.
While the prayers of saints ascend,
God of love, to mine attend;
Hear me, for thy Spirit pleads;
Hear, for Jesus intercedes.
While I hearken to thy law,
Fill my soul with humble awe,
Till thy gospel bring to me
Life and immortality.
While thy ministers proclaim
Peace and pardon in thy Name,
Through their voice, by faith, may I
Hear thee speaking from the sky.
From thy house when I return,
May my heart within me burn,
And at evening let me say,
"I have walked with God today."
