"O Lord of Hosts, Whose Glory Fills" by John M. Neale, 1818-1866 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. O Lord of hosts, whose glory fills The bounds of the eternal hills And yet vouchsaf'st, in Christian lands, To dwell in temples made with hands, 2. Grant that all we who here today Rejoicing this foundation lay May be in very deed Thine own, Built on the precious Cornerstone. 3. 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. 4. 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. 5. The heads that guide endue with skill, The hands that work preserve from ill, That we who these foundations lay May raise the top-stone in its day. 6. Both now and ever, Lord, protect The temple of Thine own elect; Be Thou in them and they in Thee, O ever-blessed Trinity!This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Marilyn F.
