1 Gracious Lord and Master,
Hear us as we call,
Now upon Thy children,
Let Thy spirit fall.
May each thought and action
Be inspir’d by Thee,
And while here we worship,
Jesus only see.

Hear us, bless us,
Fill each heart anew,
Send us forth anointed,
Better work to do.

2 We are prone to lose Thee,
Even when Thou’rt near,
Oft our thoughts will wander;
Worldly things appear.
“They who seek may find Thee,”
Is Thy promised word,
May we truly seek Thee,
Find Thee now, dear Lord. [Chorus]

3 Stay, Thou blessed Jesus,
Tarry yet awhile,
Thrill us with Thy presence,
Ev’ry weary mile,
Till, when life is ended,
On the other shore,
WE shall be accepted,
Thine forevermore. [Chorus]
