Representative Text

HERE, Lord, assembled in thy name
Thy work to do, thy help we claim,
And pray for grace that we may be
Inspired by purest love to thee.

2 Not might, nor power, thyself hast said,
Can vice destroy or virtue spread;
Thy Spirit, Lord, this work must do,
Who only can our hearts renew.

3 Come, then, to us reveal thy love,
And pour the Spirit from above,
That we with holy motives may
The impulse of his will obey.

4 O touch our lips, that we may speak
To guard the tempted, help the weak,
And guide the wandering to retrace
Their steps, and seek a Father’s face!
