131. Oh, Tarry Not, Dear Lord

1 Dear Redeemer, loving Saviour,
Now behold us from thy dwelling-place;
We are longing, we are pining,
For the sweet refreshing of thy grace;
We have gathered in thy most holy name,
And thy blessing, in trusting faith we claim;

We are praying, we are longing,
Oh, tarry not, dear Lord, but come?

2 Thou hast heard us, thou hast blessed us;
Once again thy blessing we implore;
And we give thee all the glory,
While thy tender mercy we adore;
We are looking with ever-earnest eyes,
We are waiting to see the cloud arise; [Refrain]

3 May thy Spirit, now descending,
Rest upon us like a gentle dove!
Oh, revive us, oh, refresh us,
Till our hearts shall burn with sacred love;
Thou hast promised, and we thy word believe,
That thy children shall their request receive; [Refrain]
