1 Lord, in this sacred hour
Within Thy courts we bend,
And bless Thy love, and own thy power,
Our Father and our Friend.

2 But Thou art not alone
In courts by mortals trod;
Nor only is the day thine own
When man draws near to God.

3 Thy temple is the arch
Of yon unmeasured sky:
Thy Sabbath, the stupendous march
Of thine eternity.

4 Lord, may that holier day
Dawn on Thy servants' sight:
And purer worship may we pay
In heaven's unclouded light.

Amen.
