Text (1915) by Henry Elias Fries (1857-1949)


Come, join the throng on this glad day,

And praise our God and King!

Let all rejoice with heart and voice

And thankful tribute bring.


This house, our God, to Thee we build

For worship, praise and prayer.

We here recount Thy mercies, Lord,

And all Thy watchful care.


Our glad hosannas here we raise

To Thee, our fathers’ God,

And with devotion we will tread

The paths our fathers trod.


With love to Thee this house we give,

Ourselves, our lives, our all;

We gladly own Thee as our King,

And crown Thee Lord of all.
