Here, in this place of prayer

Representative Text

Here, in this place of prayer,
Father! Thy face we seek:
Grant us that blessed peace to share,
Known to the pure and meek.

Come then to holy prayer,
Souls that seem lost in night;
Leave to the Lord your heavy care,
Who giveth life and light.

Come with a trusting prayer,
Though fears press down your souls;
The Saviour’s promise, “I am there,”
Each saddening fear controls.

Here, in this place of prayer,
Let hearts in union meet:
Come, cast the load you cannot bear
Low at the Saviour’s feet.

Then from this house of prayer
Shall mingling praise be given,
And angels, ’mid the holy air,
Shall bear the notes to heaven.
