Hymn 99 For this your house of prayer, O Lord
1 For this your house of prayer, O Lord, our grateful thanks we raise, secure upon your holy Word for worship, prayer, and praise.
2 O Jesus, source of every grace, the truth that makes men free, in you we see the Father’s face, and humbly bow the knee.
3 In worship here before your throne, rise thoughts and memories dear of those above, now claimed your own, passed onward year by year.
4 Rejoicing in their labours past, inspire us from on high to live for you, while life shall last: their work must never die.
5 Renew in us the gospel light of your New Church divine, that through your strength and through your might your glorious truth may shine.
6 Come, gentle Spirit, now, we pray, descend, O holy dove, fill us with zeal on this glad day, bring peace from heaven above. Irvin Joseph Dalby 1876-1964
