1 Lord, in Thy presence here we meet,
May we in Thee be found;
O, make the place divinely sweet;
O, let Thy grace abound.
2 Today the order of Thy house
We would in peace maintain;
We would renew our solemn vows,
And heavenly strength regain.
3 Thy Spirit, gracious Lord, impart,
Our faith and hope increase;
Display Thy love in every heart,
And keep us all in peace.
4 Let no discordant passions rise,
To mar the work of love;
But hold us in those heavenly ties,
That bind the saints above.
5 With harmony and union bless,
That we may own to Thee
How good, how sweet, how pleasant ’tis
When brethren all agree.
6 May Zion’s good be kept in view,
And bless our feeble aim,
That all we undertake to do,
May glorify Thy name.
7 May every heart be now prepared
To do Thy high commands,
And may the pleasure of the Lord
Be prospered in our hands.
8 Of those who Thy salvation know
Add to our feeble few;
And may that holy number grow,
Like drops of morning dew.
9 Work in us by Thy gracious sway,
And make Thy work appear,
That all may feel, and all may say,
The Lord indeed is here.
