1 O Thou in Whom alone is found
The strength by which our toil is blest,
Upon this consecrated ground
Now bid Thy cloud of glory rest.
2 In Thy great Name we place this stone;
To Thy great truth these walls we rear:
Long may they make Thy glory known,
And long our Saviour triumph here.
3 And while Thy sons, from earth apart,
Here seek the truth from heaven that sprung,
Fill with Thy Spirit every heart,
With living fire touch every tongue.
4 Lord, feed Thy church with peace and love;
Let sin and error pass away,
Till truth's full influence from above
Rejoice the earth with cloudless day.
