BLESS THIS HOUSE

(Church House Version)
Words by Helen Taylor and Charles Hambrick-Stowe
Music by May H. Brahe
Sung by Faith Ferry

Bless this Church House Lord we pray
Make it safe by night and day

Bless these walls so firm and stout
Keeping sin and trouble out

Bless the roof and tower tall
Let thy peace lie over all

Bless these doors, they open wide
To proclaim God's love abides.

Bless each one who worked so long
Fill each donor's heart with song

Bless the town, those far and near
May our church bring God's love here

Bless the terrace, it's a sign
Come and linger any time

Bless these windows shining bright
Letting in God's heavenly light

Bless where people come and stay
Here to share and serve and pray

Bless the kitchen, bless Lund Hall
Fellowship that welcomes all

Bless the Children's Chapel too
As our families learn from you

Bless each person gathered here
One in fellowship and prayer

Bless us all that we may be
Fit O Lord to dwell with Thee
