Friend, you have come to this church,
leave it not without a prayer.
No man entering a house
ignores him who dwells in it.
This is the House of God and He is here.
Pray then to Him Who loves you
and bids you welcome
and awaits your greeting.
Give thanks for those who in past ages
built this place to His glory
and for those who,
dying that we might live,
have preserved for us our heritage.
Praise God for His gifts of beauty
in painting and architecture,
handicraft and music.
Ask that we who now live
may build the spiritual fabric of the nation
in Truth, Beauty and Goodness
and that as we draw near to the One Father
through our Lord Jesus Christ
we may draw nearer to one another
in perfect brotherhood.
The Lord preserve thy going out
and thy coming in.
