Representative Text

1 Come, thou compassionate Savior,
Meet with us, Master and Lord,
Be in the midst of thy people,
Gathered with one accord.

Speak, Lord, thy servants will hear thee,
Come, the heart's trust to reward;
Here, in thy temple, behold us,
Gathered with one accord.

2 Many the burdens we carry,
Every heart knoweth its own;
Many our songs of rejoicing,
Reaching the heav'nly throne. [Refrain]

3 Lord, thou hast searched us and known us,
Heart are all open the thee;
Now, in one fervent petition
We would this hour agree. [Refrain]

4 Grant us the gift of thy Spirit,
Come and refresh us, O lord;
Make thyself known to thy children,
Gathered with one accord. [Refrain]
