     8 Now in the eighteenth year of his reign, when he had purged the land, and the house, he sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah the governor of the city, and Joah the son of Joahaz the recorder, to repair the house of the LORD his God. 9 And when they came to Hilkiah the high priest, they delivered the money that was brought into the house of God, which the Levites that kept the doors had gathered of the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and of all the remnant of Israel, and of all Judah and Benjamin; and they returned to Jerusalem. 10 And they put it in the hand of the workmen that had the oversight of the house of the LORD, and they gave it to the workmen that wrought in the house of the LORD, to repair and amend the house: 11 Even to the artificers and builders gave they it, to buy hewn stone, and timber for couplings, and to floor the houses which the kings of Judah had destroyed. 12 And the men did the work faithfully: and the overseers of them were Jahath and Obadiah, the Levites, of the sons of Merari; and Zechariah and Meshullam, of the sons of the Kohathites, to set it forward; and other of the Levites, all that could skill of instruments of music. 13 Also they were over the bearers of burdens, and were overseers of all that wrought the work in any manner of service: and of the Levites there were scribes, and officers, and porters.(KJV)

1. Founded on Thee, our only Lord, 
On Thee, the everlasting Rock, 
Thy Church shall stand as stands Thy Word 
Nor fear the storm nor dread the shock. 

2. For Thee our waiting spirits yearn, 
For Thee this house of praises rear, 
To Thee with longing hearts we turn; 
Come, fix Thy glorious presence here. 

3. Come, with Thy Spirit and Thy power, 
The Conqueror, once the Crucified. 
Our God, our Strength, our King, our Tower, 
Here plant Thy throne and here abide. 

4. Accept the work our hands have wrought; 
Accept, O God, this earthly shrine. 
Be Thou our Rock, our Life, our Thought, 
And we, as living temples, Thine.
