Verse 1
In Thy great name, God Almighty
We build this house of praise to Thee;
Choose it for Thy special abode
And keep it safe from all error.

Verse 2
When Thy people shall seek Thee here
And sinners seek and plead for life;
Hear us from Thy dwelling on high
And when Thou shall hear, do forgive.

Verse 3
When Thy servant shall preach the word
The gospel of Jesus Christ here,
By the power in thy great name
May signs and wonders be performed.

Verse 4
When infant voices sing their song,
Hosanna to their king on high,
May earth and heav'n join the refrain
And all angels sing Hosanna.

Verse 5
May Thy glory never depart
Yet, keep Thy presence in this house;
Thy kingdom come to every heart
Until Thou be enthroned on earth.
