105. The Old Campground

1 We have met today on the old campground,
And our hearts, O God, o’erflow
With our songs of joy, and a stream of thanks
For the love Thou dost bestow.

Refrain:
We will sing, praise the Lord!
Let the joyful music roll!
We will strike the happy key,
Hallelujah! I am free!
We will sing in sweet accord.

2 We have met today on the old campground,
And our shouts of glory ring;
There’s a mighty stir as the Lord comes down,
And the saints His praises sing. [Refrain]

3 We have met today on the old campground,
Oh, the fellowship so sweet,
As the pure in heart all together flow
In the bonds of love complete. [Refrain]

4 We have met today on the old campground,
And we come in Jesus’ name;
Here, O mighty God, let Thy thunder sound,
And Thy awesome Spirit flame. [Refrain]

5 We have met today on the old campground,
And we come to work and pray;
Here redeem, dear Lord, even multitudes
At Thy altar, day by day. [Refrain]
