10461. Again Our Earthly Cares We Leave

1 Again our earthly cares we leave
And to Thy courts repair;
Again with joyful feet we come,
To meet our Savior there.

2 Great Shepherd of Thy people, hear;
Thy presence now display:
We bow within Thy house of prayer;
Oh! give us hearts to pray.

3 The clouds which veil Thee from our sight,
In pity, Lord! remove:
Dispose our hearts to hear aright
The message of Thy love

4 Impressed with holy fear and love,
We kneel before Thy face:
Oh! may the children of Thy power
Be children of Thy grace!
