Light up This House With Glory, Lord
Light up this house with glory, Lord;
Enter, and claim Thine own;
Receive the homage of our souls,
Erect Thy temple throne.
We ask no bright shekinah-cloud
To glorify the place;
Give, Lord, the substance of that sign -
A plenitude of grace.
We rear no altar - Thou hast died;
We deck no priestly shrine;
What need have we of creature-aid?
The power to save is Thine.
Oh Thou, Who, risen, cam'st to bless,
Gently as comes the dew,
Here, entering, breathe on all around,
"Peace, peace be unto you"
No rushing, mighty wind we ask ;
No tongues of flame desire;
Grant us the Spirit's quickening light,
His purifying fire.
Light up this house with glory, Lord -
The glory of that love
Which forms and saves a church below,
And makes a heaven above.
