1 O Thou whose gracious presence blessed
The home at Bethany,
This shelter from the world’s unrest,
This home made ready for its Guest,
We dedicate to Thee.
2 When Thou didst pass the temple gate,
To pray beneath its dome,
It was Thy Father’s house, more great
Because by love made consecrate;
It was Thine only home.
3 We build an altar here, and pray
That Thou wilt show Thy face.
Dear Lord, if Thou wilt come to stay,
This home we consecrate today
Will be a holy place.
