Representative Text

1 Lord, we beseech Thee, come in Thy love,
While at Thy throne once more we meet;
Here may Thy Spirit rest like a dove,
Covered with light from the mercy seat.

Show’rs of blessing, let them now descend,
At Thy throne while we bend;
Saviour, revive us,
Come and refresh us,
Let show’rs of grace, heav’nly grace, descend.

2 O Blessed Saviour, here while we plead,
Help us in faith more strong to be;
More of Thy presence daily we need,
O that our souls may be one with Thee. [Refrain]

3 Loving Redeemer, come in Thy pow’r,
Fill with Thy praise each waiting heart;
Bless our communion here at this hour,
Strength of the soul and its life Thou art. [Refrain]
