296. Lord of hosts, To Thee we raise

1 Lord of hosts, To Thee we raise
Here a house of prayer and praise;
Thou Thy people's hearts prepare
Here to meet for praise and prayer.

2 Let the living here be fed
With Thy Word, the heavenly bread;
Here reveal Thy mercy sure,
While the sun and moon endure.

3 Hallelujah!--earth and sky
To the joyful sound reply;
Hallelujah!--hence ascend
Prayer and praise till time shall end.
