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


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!
