As here before Thine altar now I kneel
And lay my worldly burdens at Thy feet.
I feel the balm of Thy eternal blessing
Flow over me, bringing me content.
All cares and griefs dissolve and fade away
Before the peace of Thy benediction.

This, Thine altar, depicts the beauty
Of Thy presence, ever near,
The glow of burning candles,
Their warm reflection upon the highly polished woods,
And in the center, the Cross, a gleaming beacon,
Pressing Thy truth into the hearts of all men.

How mystical the light which touches
The snowy petals of blossoms placed here.
Each flower perfect within itself,
Each flower made by Thee alone,
And offered here by man
As the fairest tribute one could bring.

The cadence of Thy Prayer wafts heavenward,
Borne by the vibrant music of the organ.
"Thy will be done on earth as in heaven" --
Soon I must rise, return once more to the world;
May Thy unseen power which moves me at this moment
Go with me on my way
That I may never be alone, doubting in a troubled world.
