This House We Dedicate to Thee

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 245

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!
