This House We Dedicate to Thee


This House We Dedicate to Thee


1. This house we dedicate to thee,

Our God, our fathers’ God.

Wilt thou accept and deign to bless

The path our feet have trod?

2. Wilt thou thy servants here inspire

When in thy name they speak?

And wilt thou bless each contrite soul

Who here thy face doth seek?

3. Here may our sons and daughters come

And find that peace which swells

From grateful hearts, when touched by thee,

Wherein thy Spirit dwells!
