380. Father, Again in Jesus' Name We Meet

1 Father, again in Jesus' name we meet,
and bow in penitence beneath your feet:
again to you our feeble voices raise,
to sue for mercy, and to sing your praise.

2 O we would bless you for your ceaseless care,
and all your works from day to day declare:
is not our life with hourly mercies crowned?
Does not your arm encircle us around?

3 Alas, unworthy of your boundless love,
too oft with careless feet from you we rove;
but now, encouraged by your voice, we come,
returning sinners to a Father's home.

4 O by that name in whom all fullness dwells,
O by that love which ev'ry love excels,
O by that blood so freely shed for sin,
open blest mercy's gate and take us in.
