O Lord, our God, accept, we pray

Representative Text

1 O Lord, our God, accept, we pray,
The house we consecrate this day;
And let Thy glory fill this place--
The glory of Thy truth and grace.

2 Here give us e'er such servants, Lord,
As rightly will divide Thy Word;
That all may grow, by what they hear,
In saving grace and holy fear.

3 Here too baptize Thou those and bless,
Who plead Thy cov'nant promises,
To us and to our children giv'n,
And with us make them heirs of heav'n.

4 Here let Thy tender lambs be fed,
Yea, fed with Thine own living bread;
To hear Thy voice let them be taught
And from Thy fold to wander not.

5 Here let Thy holy Sacrament
According to Thy Word be spent;
And grant that all indeed believe,
Who here the heavenly food receive.

6 O Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Here bless us as we need it most;
Our prayer and praise accept in love,
And fit us for our home above.

Amen.
