HAIL FESTAL DAY (DEDICATION OF A CHURCH)




This is Godís Court,
the place of peace and rest;
The poor with Solomonís
own wealth are blest.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



Tho Son of David,
God and man, doth come
To knit us to Him
in this Mother-Home.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



Ye are the company
of heavín below,
If ye will keep the faith
which makes you so.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



Here new Jerusalem
descends all bright
In angel raiment from
the world of light.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



Faith, by the mystic laver,
doth possess
This guerdon from
the King of righteousness.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



Here stands the tower
of David; hither run
And find the pledge
of realms beyond the sun.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



This is the ark of NoŽ;
safe within,
Believers ride the flood,
and harbour win.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.



Lo, this is Jacobís ladder,
here Ďtis given
By faith and godly life
to climb to heaven.

Hail festal day, for ever sanctified,
When Christ is married
to the Church, His Bride.
