1 Jesus, where'er your people meet
there they behold your mercy seat,
where'er they seek you, you are found
and every place is hallowed ground.
2 For you, within no walls confined,
are present in the humble mind;
such ever bring you where they come,
and, going, take your to their home.
3 Dear Shepherd of your chosen few,
your former mercies here renew;
here to our waiting hearts proclaim
the sweetness of your saving name.
4 Here may we prove the power of prayer
to strengthen faith and sweeten care,
to teach our faint desires to rise,
and bring all heaven before our eyes.
5 Lord, we are few, but you are near,
your arm can save, your ear can hear;
O rend the heavens, come quickly down,
and make a thousand hearts your own.
