This is the full text of the hymn quoted in my lyrics quiz. Enjoy!

Cathedral View

Our thanks we give for life and hope in this your temple dwelling,
which we rekindle in our joyous telling.
     In this place of light and beauty our hearts are filled,
     our lives renewed, and we find grace and blessing.

We thank you, God, for wondrous light, your presence here proposing,
in splendid hue your love and peace reposing.
     In this place of light and beauty our hearts are filled,
     our lives renewed, and we find grace and blessing.

With thankful hearts through word and song, your gladsome tidings bringing,
our voices raised in grateful praises singing.
     In this place of light and beauty our hearts are filled,
     our lives renewed, and we find grace and blessing.

So thanks we give for tongues to sing your great redeeming story
of joy and love our great Cathedral's glory.
     In this place of light and beauty our hearts are filled,
     our lives renewed, and we find grace and blessing.
