This Day In Answer To God

This day in answer to God’s call
We gather in these hallowed walls,
And joyful hymn and fervent prayer
Rise mingling on the holy air.

May searching hearts that seek release
Here find the blessing of God’s peace
And strengthened here by hymn and prayer
Go forth to work with heavenly care.

Life’s tumult we must meet again:
We cannot at this shrine remain;
But lifted here in light and power
We can remember this high hour.
