364. Jesus, stand among us

1 Jesus, stand among us
in your risen power;
let this time of worship
be a hallowed hour.

2 Breathe the Holy Spirit
into every heart;
bid the fears and sorrows
from each soul depart.

3 Thus with quickened footsteps
we'll pursue our way,
watching for the dawning
of the eternal day.
