277. Christians, We Have Met to Worship

1 Christians, we have met to worship
and adore the living God;
will you pray with all your power,
while we try to preach the word?
All is vain unless the Spirit
of the Holy One comes down;
Christians, pray, and holy manna
will be showered all around.

2 Is there here a trembling jailer,
seeking grace and filled with fears?
Is there here a weeping Mary
pouring forth a flood of tears?
Tell them all about the Savior,
how in Christ the lost are found.
Pray, oh pray, and holy manna
will be scattered all around.

3 Let us love our God supremely,
let us love each other, too;
let us pray for all earth's people
till our God makes all things new.
Christ will call us home to heaven,
at the table we'll sit down;
Christ will welcome us and serve us
living manna all around.
