650. Lord, when together here we meet

1 Lord, when together here we meet,
And taste thy heav'nly grace;
Thy smiles are so divinely sweet,
We're loath to leave the place.

2 But, Father, since it is thy will,
That we must part again;
Oh, may thy special presence still
With ev'ry one remain.

3 And let us all in Christ be one,
Bound with the cords of love;
Till we, before thy glorious throne,
Shall joyful meet above.

4 All sin and sorrow from each heart,
Shall then for ever fly;
Nor shall a thought that we must part,
Once interrupt our joy.
