444. Dear Shepherd of your people, hear

1 Dear Shepherd of your people, hear,
your presence now display;
as you have given a place for prayer,
so give us hearts to pray.

2 Within these walls let holy peace
and love and concord dwell;
here give the troubled conscience ease,
the wounded spirit heal.

3 May we in faith receive your word,
in faith present our prayers;
and in the presence of our Lord
unburden all our cares.

4 The hearing ear, the seeing eye,
the humble mind bestow;
and shine upon us from on high,
to make our graces grow.
