Full Text

1 Lord Jesus, though but two or three
In Your dear name assembled be,
You will among them show Your face
And bless them with Your saving grace.

2 In Your dear name again we meet
And worship humbly at your feet;

Your peace and comfort now bestow;
Abide with us till life is o'er
And keep us Yours forevermore.
