Representative Text

1 Again we meet in gladness,
And raise the tuneful song;
Nor shade of care or sadness
Broods o’er our happy throng.
Within Thy house we gather
On this sweet day of rest,
And pray Thee, O our Father,
In blessing make us blest.

2 For mercies all so tender,
For goodness ever free,
We now devoutly render
Our praises, Lord, to Thee;
For truth so brightly beaming—
For Christ, the sinner’s friend,
Whose love, a world redeeming,
Shall never, never end.

3 For Holy Spirit, seeking
Our wayward hearts to win,
For voice within us speaking
When led to doubt or sin—
For bliss we may inherit
When this brief life is o’er,
Thee, Father, Son, and Spirit,
We gratefully adore.

4 In each unknown tomorrow
Mark out for us the way;
And lead, through joy or sorrow,
To realms of endless day.
With loved ones gone before us,
There may we join to raise
The hallelujah chorus
Of never ending praise.
