Representative Text

1 Coming, coming, we are coming
To Thy temple, gracious Lord,
To receive the bless├Ęd teaching
Of Thy pure and perfect Word;
Meekly would we learn our duty,
Learn it kneeling at Thy feet,
While a radiance from Thy glory
Covers all the mercy-seat.

2 Singing, singing, we are singing
How Thy wondrous love, so free,
Floweth onward, ever onward,
Like a vast and mighty sea;
And our souls mount up with gladness
While we swell the lofty strain,
Glory, glory, hallelujah,
To the Lamb for sinners slain!

3 Praying, praying, we are praying
That Thy Spirit, like a dove,
May descend with gifts of mercy
From Thy gracious hand above;
Lord, we ask, that in Thy watch-care,
We may all protected be,
Every hand be quick to labor,
And our hearts be stayed on Thee.
