Christ is the Foundation of the house we raise

Christ is the foundation
of the house we raise;
be its walls salvation,
and its gateways praise;
may its threshold lowly
to the Lord be dear;
may the hearts be holy
that shall worship here.

Here the vow be sealèd
by thy Spirit, Lord;
here the sick be healèd,
and the lost restored;
here the broken-hearted
thy forgiveness prove;
here the friends long parted
be restored to love.

Here may every token
of thy presence be;
here may chains be broken,
prisoners here set free;
here may light illumine
every soul of thine,
lifting up the human,
into the divine.

Here may God the Father,
Christ the Savior-Son,
with the Holy Spirit,
be adored as One;
till the whole creation
at thy footstool fall,
and in adoration
own thee Lord of all.
