Representative Text

1. To Thy temple holy, come we now with praise;
Thou, the meek and lowly, guide us to Thy ways;
To Thy courts ascending, though unworthy we;
Let our worship, blending, swell Thy harmony.

2. Not with ostentation, not with proud acclaim,
Come we, Lord and Master, to extol Thy name;
But with Christly spirit, humble and sincere,
Pleading but Thy merit, we Thy name revere.

3. For Thy Holy Spirit earnestly we plead,
Visit us, bestowing grace for all our need,
Sanctify our worship to Thy glory, Lord;
Grant us spirits eager to receive Thy Word.

4. To Thy temple holy, come we now with praise;
Thou, the meek and lowly, guide us to Thy ways;
So shall we, renewing every solemn vow,
Live for larger service if Thou bless us now.

Showing early musical promise, William Marion Runyan (b. Marion, NY, 1870; d. Pittsburg, KS, 1957) was a substitute church organist by the age of twelve. He became a Methodist minister in 1891 and served several churches in Kansas but turned to evangelism in 1903; he worked for the Central Methodist Conference for the next twenty years. Following that service, Runyan became pastor at the Federated Church at John Brown University, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas. Editor of Christian Workers Magazine, he also served the Moody Bible Institute and was an editor for Hope Publishing Company until his retirement in 1948. Runyan wrote a number of hymn texts, gospel songs, and hymn tunes. Bert Polman Go to person page >
