When the Architect Almighty fashioned had the heaven and earth. Bishop C. Wordsworth of Lincoln. [Consecration of a Church.] Appeared in his Holy Year, 1862, p. 221, in 10 double stanzas of 4 lines, and headed "Consecration of Churches, or Laying the First Stone." In the 3rd ed. of the Holy Year it was repeated in two parts, Pt. ii. beginning "O'er the Font's baptismal waters may the Holy Spirit move." Usually this hymn is given in an abbreviated form, that adopted by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Church Hymns, 1871, being the most popular. For its special purpose, for use at the Consecration of a Church, it is one of the finest hymns in common use.
