Representative Text

1 O God! ere Heav’n and earth were planned,
Adoring silence worshipped Thee;
Now vast the universe doth stand,
The temple of Thy majesty.

2 Its walls are wrought of sapphire bright;
Its countless spires are starry flame:
Suns on the boundless ether write
The sovereign beauty of Thy name.

3 An earthly temple, by Thy grace,
This day we dedicate to Thee;
Deign to make here Thy dwelling place
O Thou that fill’st immensity.

4 Fold us beneath Thy sheltering wings,
As here we worship at Thy shrine;
Ours be the peace Thy presence brings,
The glory and the praise be Thine.
