1 Peace be on this house bestow'd,
Peace on all that here reside;
Let the unknown peace of God
With the man of peace abide!
Let the Spirit now come down:
Let the blessings now take place;
Son of peace, receive thy crown,
Fulness of the gospel grace.

2 Christ my Master, and my Lord,
Let me thy forerunner be:
O be mindful of thy word,
Visit them, and visit me!
To this house and all herein,
Now let thy salvation come!
Save our souls from inbred sin!
Make us thine eternal home!

3 Let us never, never rest
Till the praise is fulfill'd:
Till we are of thee possess'd,
Pardon'd, sanctified, and seal'd;
Till we all, in love renew'd,
Find the pearl that Adam lost,
Temples of the living God,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!

Notes

Peace be on this house bestowed. C. Wesley. [Household Peace desired. ] This hymn, although beginning in a similar manner and on the same subject as one by Wesley, is altogether a different hymn. It was published in the Hymns & Sacred Poems 1742, p. 157, in 3 stanzas of 8 1ines, and entitled "The Salutation." (P. Works, 1868-72, vol. ii. p. 210.) It was included in the Wesleyan Hymn Book, 1780, No. 467, and has since passed into several Methodist collections.
