A New House of Worship.
God of the universe! to thee
This sacred house we rear,
And now, with songs and bended knee,
Invoke thy presence here.
2 Long may this echoing dome resound
The praises of thy name,
These hallowed walls to all around
The Triune God proclaim.
3 Here let thy love, thy presence dwell;
Thy glory here make known;
Thy people's home, oh! come and fill,
And seal it as thine own.
4 And, when the last long Sabbath morn
Upon the just shall rise,
May all who own thee here be borne
To mansions in the skies.
Miss Mary O -- -- , 1841.
