303. Unto Thy Temple, Lord, We Come

1 Unto thy temple, Lord, we come
with thankful heats to worship thee,
and pray that this may be our home
until we touch eternity:

2 The common home of rich and poor,
of bond and free, and great and small;
large as thy love for evermore,
and warm and bright and good to all.

3 And dwell thou with us in this place,
thou and thy Christ, to guide and bless.
Here make the well-springs of thy grace
like fountains in the wilderness.

4 May thy whole truth be spoken here;
thy gospel light for ever shine;
thy perfect love cast out all fear,
and human life become divine.
