1 Dear Jesus here we now attend,
We pray thy blessed spirit send!
By which the way of life is shown,
And all thy sacred truths made known.
2 Prepare our lips to sing thy praise
And fill our minds with heavenly grace;
Our faith increase, our love perfect,
And in the way of truth direct.
3 Cause us to sing with one accord
To thee our holy, holy Lord!
Until we see thy glorious face,
And praise thee with eternal praise.Source: Church Hymn Book: consisting of newly composed hymns with the addition of hymns and psalms, from other authors, carefully adapted for the use of public worship, and many other occasions (1st ed.) #II
