HYMN CCCI.

7.7.7.7

James Montgomery

On Opening a Place for Worship.

Lord of hosts, to Thee we raise

Here an house of prayer and praise;

Thou Thy people's hearts prepare,

Here to meet for praise and prayer.

Let the living here be fed,

With thy Word, the heavenly bread;

Here, in hope of glory bless'd,

May the dead be laid to rest.

Here to Thee a temple stand,

While the sea shall gird the land;

Here reveal Thy mercy sure,

While the sun and moon endure.

321

Hallelujah!--earth and sky

To the joyful sound reply;

Hallelujah!--hence ascend

Prayer and praise till time shall end.
