Met again in Jesus' name

Representative Text

1 Met again in Jesus’ name,
At His throne we humbly bow.
He is evermore the same:
Lo! He waits to meet us now.

2 In His name, if two or three
Meet, and for His mercy call,
"There," the Savior saith, “I’ll be
In the midst, to bless you all.

3 "You shall never ask in vain,
Though your number be but few:
Firm the promise doth remain;
Lo! I always am with you."

4 Savior, we believe the word;
Calmly wait the promised grace.
Spirit of our risen Lord,
Holy Spirit, fill the place!
