God Of Thunder And The Lightning

Representative Text

1 God of thunder and the lightning
Clothed in majesty divine,
To Thy feet we bring this tribute;
Lord, accept this house as Thine.

2 To Thy name, O Lord Jehovah,
We this temple dedicate;
Lord receive this humble tribute,
Sanctify it, early, late.

3 Send Thy Spirit, Lord, from Heaven,
Consecrate its sacred halls;
Let Thy ever biding presence
Dwell within these humble walls.

4 Here may thousands hear Thy Gospel,
Preached in love and power divine,
While the glittering choirs of Heaven
Swell Thy upper courts sublime.

5 Here may sinners be converted
While we sing our Savior’s praise;
May the deaf, the halt, the blinded,
Here their Ebenezer raise.

6 Now to God, the King immortal,
Who reveals Himself to men,
Be the praise and glory given,
While the angels shout, "Amen."
