LIGHT UP THIS HOUSE WITH GLORY, LORD
(Tune - Amazing Grace, #236)
Light up this house with glory, Lord,
Enter and claim Thine own;
Receive the homage of our souls,
Erect Thy temple - throne.
We rear no altar - Thou hast died;
We deck no priestly shrine;
What need have we of creature aid?
The power to save is Thine.
We ask no bright shekinah- cloud
To glorify this place;
Give, Lord, the substance of that sign -
Thy presence and Thy grace.
No rushing, mighty wind, we ask;
No tongues of flame desire;
Grant us the Spirit's quickening light,
His purifying power.
We'll send the gospel's banner wide
To sinful hearts, depraved;
And here, O Jesus crucified,
Come forth in power to save!
