Unless the Lord shall build the house,
with architecture plainly designed to show his loveliness,
the workers labor vainly.
Come Master Craftsman,
and rebuild, make me a new creation,
a temple and a house of prayer,
your strength the firm foundation.
Unsleeping Watchman, guard my hours;
fulfill my heart's requesting:-
employ my days in a serving you,
my night in peaceful resting.
