A Prayer Of Dedication

Hear our prayer, Lord of Love
We beseech Thee.
Come in to our hearts this glad day;
Lift our eyes to Thy throne
And its glory.
Come Thou in to our hearts as we pray.


Lift our souls as we pledge adoration,
And bless this Thy House all the way.
May it be for us re-dedication,
And come to this Shrine as we pray.

May these walls here resound
With the magic
Of the Old Story told, ever new.
May sweet anthems proclaim
Thy salvation,
May we serve Thee the whole journey through,

Dedication in thought
And in action;
Dedication in striving for Thee.
Dedication in lifting
The fallen.
Dedication to Love's Mystery.

H. B. Austin
