Text: Ephesians 2:19-22
We love thy Nation, Lord!
The Israel of old,
Now spread abroad through all the earth,
The Kingdom of our God.
Now grant, O Lord, that we – fitted together be,
That in thy Church we find our place and serve her faithfully.
We love thy fam’ly Lord!
Adopted through thy Son.
Brothers and sisters are we true;
Diverse – yet always one.
We love thy building, Lord!
Built on the Rock which stands.
And ev’ry brick fits perfectly;
Placed there with thine own hands.
We love thy Body, Lord!
We love to watch it grow.
As Christ-the-Head grants life to all
The members here below.
We love thy Temple, Lord!
The House of thine abode.
The holy place where glory shines;
Enlightening the earth.
