1 Brethren, we have met to worship
and adore the Lord our God;
will you pray with all your power,
while we try to preach the Word?
All is vain, unless the Spirit
of the Holy One comes down;
brethren, pray, and holy manna
will be showered all around.

2 Brethren, see poor sinners round you
slumb'ring on the brink of woe;
death is coming, hell is moving–
can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers
and our children sinking down;
brethren, pray, and holy manna
will be showered all around.

3 Sisters, will you join and help us?
Moses' sister aided him;
will you help the trembling mourners
who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior–
tell them that he will be found;
sisters, pray, and holy manna
will be showered all around.

4 Let us love our God supremely,
let us love each other too;
let us love and pray for sinners
till our God makes all things new.
Then he'll call us home to heaven,
at his table we'll sit down;
Christ will gird himself and serve us
with sweet manna all around.
