1 In Thy dear name and by Thy favor,
This day we lay the corner-stone,
To build a house, O God and Savior,
To Thee, and to Thy praise alone.
Here let Thy Spirit by Thy Word
Perform Thy work of grace, dear Lord.
2 O let us all by faith be grounded,
Lord Jesus Christ, on Thee alone;
That is our midst Thy praise be sounded,
Who art the Church's Corner-stone.
To keep us in Thy faith and fear,
Build Thee and us a temple here.
3 Accept our off'rings, we implore Thee,
And bless the work we have begun;
To Thee alone and to Thy glory
This building consecrate, when done;
Then will we hither come and raise
Our hearts to Thee in thanks and praise.
4 Thro' saving faith preserve us ever
In Thy pure Word and Sacrament;
Be with us all, forsake us never;
To serve Thee make our hearts intent;
And when we die, O grant that we
Be found in cov'nant grace with Thee.
