#180: Lord God, Our Thanks to THee We Raise

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Lord God, our thanks to Thee we raise

For those who built this house of praise,

Who long ago together stood

To form a Christian brotherhood.

2

Here have our children known Thy care

And raised their tho’ts to Thee in prayer;

Here have we shared the Wine, the Bread —

Here have our living souls been fed.

3

Still thru the years be Thou our guide,

Keep us from enmity and pride;

Still help us choose the better part —

A humble and a thankful heart.

4

Be this our common enterprise:

That truth be preach’d and pray’r arise,

That each may seek the other’s good

And live and love as Jesus would.

5

Create in us the word, the deed,

That ours may be a living creed;

And cause Thy grace in us to dwell —

Abide with us, Immanuel!
