In Thy Name, O Lord, Assembling

Representative Text

1 In Thy name, O Lord, assembling,
We, Thy people, now draw near;
Teach us to rejoice with trembling;
Speak, and let Thy servants hear,
Hear with meekness,
Hear Thy word with godly fear.

2 While our days on earth are lengthened,
May we give them, Lord, to Thee;
Cheered by hope, and daily strengthened,
May we run, nor weary be,
Till Thy glory
Without cloud in heaven we see.

3 Then, in worship purer, sweeter,
All Thy people shall adore,
Sharing then in rapture greater
Than they could conceive before,
Full enjoyment,
Full and pure, forevermore.
