Eternal, Almighty, Invisible God!
We gratefully enter thy sacred abode,
With rev’rence and love to exalt thy great name,
And loudly thy manifold mercies proclaim.
As kindred surrounding a family shrine,
We here stand assembled for worship divine;
Thy presence, oh Lord! let us all realize,
While songs to thy throne shall in harmony rise.
Though angels their voices with mortals unite,
And sing of thy glory from morning to night,
All praises must short of thy excellence fall,
Creator, protector, and father of all!
Oh! still be the Shepherd of Israel’s flock,
Progressive in faith let us steadily walk;
Made pure by thy Law, to whose promise and threat,
The seals, both of justice and mercy were set.
Blest witnesses shall we continue to be,
That there is no God nor Redeemer but thee!
Thy truth and thy unity zealous to urge,
In life, or when brought to eternity’s verge!
