Holiness becomes Thy house,
’Tis Thou who dost dwell in light;
Thou begirt with majesty,
Gird us with truth,
And with Thy great might.

Send Thou forth Thy power and love,
In beauty of holiness;
We would here commune with Thee,
Eternal God,
Be Thou near to bless.

O supreme and perfect One,
O Lord, praise to Thee is due;
Clothe us in the grace of love,
Maintain Thy church,
To Thy service true.
