Representative Text

1 Eternal God, before thy throne we bend,
Thy grace to seek, thy holy Name to bless;
Humbly our hearts in grateful praise ascend
To thee whose ways are truth and righteousness.
With all the hosts of heaven we thee adore,
Holy art thou, the same for evermore. A-men.

2 Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour and our Friend,
Whom angels praise before the throne on high,
How vast thy love to love us to the end,
And on the cruel Cross to bleed and die.
O blest Redeemer, hear thy children pray:
O Lamb of God, take all our sins away!

3 Spirit of truth, of peace, of joy divine,
Descend to us in all thy saving power;
Kindle a flame of faith and love to shine
Within our yearning hearts this sacred hour;
Show us the Father's will, the Saviour's love,
And fit our souls to dwell with thee above!

Amen.
