Call Us Thine Own

Dear Savior, we gather Once more at Thy throne

Author: Fanny Crosby
Tune: [Dear Savior, we gather]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Dear Saviour, we gather
Once more at thy throne;
Oh, hear us, we pray thee,
Now make us thine own.

Here gratefully bending,
Sweet melody blending,
Come, oh, come, tenderly
Call us thine own.

2 Dear Saviour, thy promise
We truly believe;
Whoever will seek thee
Shall mercy receive. [Chorus]

3 Dear Saviour, behold us,
In thee would we hide;
We ask that thy Spirit
In us may abide. [Chorus]

4 Dear Saviour, we love thee,
Thy name we adore;
Oh, grant us thy blessing,
Thy joy evermore. [Chorus]
