Representative Text

1 Lord divine, we come on this thy holy day;
In thy temple here we bow before thee;
At thine altar now we lowly kneel to pray;
With thy saints we worship and adore thee.

Lord divine, be thou with us today;
In ev’ry tho’t have thou a part;
Lord divine, O keep us in thy way;
Make thou thy throne within each heart.

2 Lord divine, in thee we find our needs fulfilled;
Strength and wisdom thou dost freely send us;
At thy word our hearts with courage are instilled;
Thou in ev’ry moment will befriend us. [Chorus]

3 Lord divine, on thee we cast our ev’ry care,
On thy holy word of grace relying;
With our Shepherd near our daily life to share,
We rejoice, all evil pow’r defying. [Chorus]
