11903. O Thou, Whose Glory Shone Like Fire

1 O Thou, whose glory shone like fire,
Within the ancient temple walls,
Grant us our heart’s sincere desire:
Thy presence in these sacred halls.

2 O Thou, who, homeless, wandered wide
Through far Judea’s favored land,
Make this a home for men, and guide
The steps of all with Thy strong hand.

3 O Thou, who sorrowing in the night,
Longed for the love of human friend,
Make here a spring of friendship bright
With Thy rich love that knows no end.

4 O Thou, whose life and words were one,
Strong, manly, holy and divine;
Here may our fellow men be shown
How they may live a life like Thine.
