“My House shall be a House of Prayer
For all that live, to worship there:”
Thus saith the Lord:—how answer we?
“Thine House, our House of Prayer shall be.”

“Wherever I my Name record,
There will I meet Thee,” saith the Lord;
Thee in Thine House of Prayer we meet;
Now bless us from the Mercy-seat.

James Montgomery (1771—1854)
