Representative Text

1 Great God, we in thy courts appear,
With humble joy and holy fear,
Thy wise injunctions to obey;
Let saints and angels hail the day!

2 Great things, O everlasting son,
Great things for us thy grace has done;
Constrained by thy almighty love,
Our willing feet to meet thee move.

3 In thy assemble here we stand,
Obedient to thy great command;
The sacred flood is full in view,
And thy sweet voice invites us thro'.

4 The world, the spirit, and the bride
Must not invite and be deny'd;
Was not the lord who came to save,
Interr'd in such a liquid grave?

5 Thus we, dear Savior, own thy name,
Reciev us rising from the stream;
Then to thy table let us come,
And dwell in Sion as our home.
