41. Opening Song

1 Once again we come to the house of God,
To unite in songs of praise;
To extol with joy our Redeemer’s name,
And to tell His wondrous ways.

Refrain:
To Thy house, O Lord, with rejoicing we come,
For we know that we are Thine;
We will worship Thee in the Bible way,
As the evening light doth shine.

2 In the days gone by, Thou hast been our stay,
Thou hast led us safely on
To the blessed light of the present day,
Where the darkness now is gone. [Refrain]

3 May our hearts, O Lord, e’er united be
In true fellowship and love;
May Thy will be done by us here on earth,
As by angel hosts above. [Refrain]

4 May our prayers ascend as an incense sweet,
And our praise accepted be,
As in gratitude all our hearts o’erflow
In a tribute unto Thee. [Refrain]
