Edward Everett Hale (1822-1909)

O Father, take the new-built shrine;
The house our hands have reared is Thine;
Greet us with welcome when we come,
And make our Father’s house our home.

Blest with Thy Spirit while we stay,
May we Thy Spirit bear away,
That every heart a shrine may be,
And every home a home for Thee.
