  1.   All things are Thine; no gift have we,
       Lord of all gifts, to offer Thee:
       And hence with grateful hearts today
       Thine own before Thy feet we lay.

  2.   Thy will was in the builders' thought;
       Thy hand unseen amidst us wrought;
       Through mortal motive, scheme and plan
       Thy wise eternal purpose ran.

  3.   In weakness and in want we call
       On Thee for Whom the heavens are small;
       Thy glory is Thy children's good,
       Thy joy Thy tender Fatherhood.

  4.   O Father, deign these walls to bless;
       Fill with Thy love their emptiness;
       And let their door a gateway be
       To lead us from ourselves to Thee.
