304. All Things Are Thine

1 All things are thine; no gift have we,
Lord of all gifts, to offer thee;
and so with grateful hearts today
thine own before thy feet we lay.
Thy will was informed builders' thought;
thy hand unseen amidst us wrought;
through mortal motive, scheme, and plan,
thy wise eternal purpose ran.

2 No lack thy perfect fullness knew;
for human needs and longings grew
this house of prayer, this home of rest,
where grace is shared and truth addressed.
In weakness and in want, we call
on thee for whom the heavens are small;
thy glory is thy children's good,
thy joy fulfilled in servanthood.

3 All things are thine; no gift have we,
Lord of all gifts, to offer thee;
and so with grateful hearts today
thine own before thy feet we lay.
Come now and deign these walls to bless;
fill with thy love their emptiness;
and let their door a gateway be
to lead us from ourselves to thee.
