Hymn 240
1. Great King of glory, come,
And with thy favor crown
This temple as thy home,
This people as thine own:
Beneath this roof, oh! deign to show
How God can dwell with men below.

2. Here may thine ears attend
Our interceding cries,
And grateful praise ascend,
Like incense, to the skies:
Here may thy word melodious sound,
And spread celestial joys around.

3. Here may our unborn sons
And daughters sound thy praise,
And shine like polished stones,
Through long succeeding days:
Here, Lord, display thy saving power,
While temples stand, and men adore.

4. Here may the listening throng
Imbibe thy truth and love;
Here Christians join the song
Of seraphims above:
Till all who humbly seek thy face,
Rejoice in thy abounding grace.
