Fill this House, Lord God most glorious,
with your presence, with your light!
May the offering of our music
be well-pleasing in your sight:
echo of a distant anthem,
pointer to a country bright.

Fill our hearts, Lord God almighty,
with thanksgiving for this place:
for its heritage of worship,
songs and silence, sacred space;
for the gifts of choir and organ,
messengers alike of grace.

Send us out, Lord God our Father,
in the steps of Christ your Son;
in the power of your Spirit,
flamed with fire from heaven's throne;
mindful of our joyful calling,
living for your praise alone.
