Hymn/Song Information

This stone to Thee in faith we lay We




This stone to thee in faith we lay;
We build the temple, Lord, to thee:
Thine eye be open, night and day,
To guard this house and sanctuary.


Here, when thy people seek thy face,
And dying sinners pray to live,
Hear thou, in heaven thy dwelling place,
And when thou hearest, O forgive!


Here, when thy messengers proclaim
The blessèd gospel of thy Son,
Still, by the power of his great name,
Be mighty signs and wonders done.


But will the eternal Father deign,
Here to abide, no transient guest?
Will here the world’s Redeemer reign,
And here the Holy Spirit rest?


That glory never hence depart!
Yet choose not, Lord, this house alone;
Thy kingdom come to every heart:
In all the world be thine the throne.


---Alternative verses---


This stone to thee in faith we lay;
To thee this temple, Lord, we build;
Thy power and goodness here display,
And be it with thy presence filled.


Here, when thy people seek thy face,
And dying sinners pray to live,
Hear thou in heaven, thy dwelling-place;
And when thou hearest, Lord, forgive!


Here, when thy messengers proclaim
The blessed gospel of thy Son,
Still, by the power of his great name,
Be mighty signs and wonders done.


Hosanna! to their heavenly King,
When children's voices raise that song,
Hosanna! let their angels sing,
And heaven with earth the strain prolong.


But will indeed Jehovah deign
Here to abide, no transient guest?
Here will the world's Redeemer reign?
And here the Holy Spirit rest?


The glory never hence depart;
Yet choose not, Lord, this house alone;
Thy kingdom come to every heart;
In every bosom fix thy throne!
