p Grant that all we, who here to-day Rejoicing this foundation lay, May be in very deed Thine own,
[Built on the precious corner-stone. Endue the creatures with Thy grace That shall adorn Thy dwelling-place;
The beauty of the oak and pine,
The gold and silver, make them Thine.
(To Thee they all belong; to Thee The treasures of the earth and sea;
And when we bring them to Thy throne We but present Thee with Thine own. Endue the hearts that guide with skill, Preserve the hands that work from ill; That we, who these foundations lay, May raise the top-stone in its day. Both now and ever, Lord, protect The temple of Thine own elect; Be Thou in them, and they in Thee, O ever-bless6d Trinity.
Rev, John M. Neale, 1844
2 For Thee our waiting spirits yearn, For Thee this house of praise we rear;
To Thee with longing hearts we turn:
Come, fix Thy glorious presence here. I i Come, with Thy Spirit and Thy power, The Conqueror, once the Crucified;
Our God, our strength, our king, our tower, Here plant Thy throne, and here abide.
4 Accept the work our hands have wrought; Accept, O God, this earthly shrine;
Be Thou our rock, our life, our thought,
And we, as living temples, Thine.
Rev. Samuel F. Smith, 1894
