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.
