a127. Great God! a blessing from Thy throne

1 Great God! a blessing from Thy throne
Grant us, who lay this corner-stone
To build a church, in which Thy Word
Is purely taught, and gladly heard.

2 The work is Thine, and not our own,
Then come, and make thy presence known!
Our pray'rs accept, our off’rings bless,
And to our labors grant success.

3 Remember, Lord, what Thou hast done
For us, through Christ, Thine own dear Son,
From sin and death to set us free,
And win us unto heaven and Thee.

4 We are the people of Thy choice,
And while we in this grace rejoice,
Our prayer is this, our constant care,
That others too our bliss may share.

5 Then build us here a house and home,
Where Christ to Him may bid us come,
To save us all with grace divine,
That we may be forever thine.
