Author: M. H. Forscutt, 1834-1903 Hymnal: The Hymnal #50 (1956) Hymnal Title: The Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Met in thy sacred name, O Lord,
To worship thee below,
Grant that each soul with joy may thrill,
With love each bosom glow.
2 In festive scenes, mid giddy throngs
Of those whom sins delight
We would not mingle but would walk
In truth's free saving light.
3 Thy cheering promise, Lord, we wait,
"Wherever two or three
Shall in my name together meet,
There will I choose to be."
4 Inspire our praise, direct our prayer,
Thy Spirit fill each heart;
Cloth thou with power each thought and word,
To all thy grace impart.
