And will the great eternal God
On earth establish His abode?
And will He, from His radiant throne,
Accept our temple for His own?
These walls we to Thy honor raise;
Long may they echo with Thy praise;
And Thou, descending, fill the place
With choicest tokens of Thy grace.
Here let the great Redeemer reign,
With all the graces of His train;
While power divine His Word attends,
To conquer foes, and cheer His friends.
And in that great decisive day,
When God the nations shall survey,
May it before the world appear
That crowds were born to glory here.
