On Thee, the everlasting Rock,
Thy Church shall stand as stands Thy word,
Nor fear the storm, nor dread the shock.
2 For Thee our waiting spirits yearn,
For Thee this house of praise we rear;
To Thee with longing hearts we turn;
Come, fix Thy glorious presence here.
3 Come, with Thy Spirit and Thy power,
The Conqueror, once the Crucified;
Our God, our Strength, our King, our Tower,
Here plant Thy throne, and here abide.
4 Accept the work our hands have wrought;
Accept, O God, this earthly shrine;
Be Thou our Rock, our Life, our Thought,
And we, as living temples, Thine.
Amen. Topics: Special Seasons and Services Dedication Services: Church; Dedication Services Used With Tune: MENDON
