Representative Text

1 Holy Spirit, while we gather
At this consecrated hour,
We would ask Thy presence with us,
We would feel Thy quick’ning pow’r.

Holy Spirit, while we gather,
From our toil and labor free,
Rest upon us, dwell within us,
Close our hearts to all but Thee.

2 Blessed Spirit, through Thy teaching,
While we read our Saviour’s word
And with Him we hold communion,
May His loving voice be heard. [Refrain]

3 O ‘tis pray’r that brings the blessing
When all other joys have flown,
Pray’r that makes our burdens lighter,
Draws us near our Father’s throne. [Refrain]
