Representative Text

1 Near to the Saviour, O come very near,
Pray for a blessing on all that are here;
Pray that His Spirit may come at this hour,
Filling each heart with the life-giving power.

Wait, wait, wait at His throne;
Bring your petitions, and there make them known;
Wait, wait, prayer will prevail;
He has declared it whose word cannot fail.

2 Here we are gathered in Jesus’ dear name,
Jesus who taught us His blessing to claim;
If in His promise we truly believe,
Pray with a faith that expects to receive. [Refrain]

3 Plead for the souls that are languid and cold,
Plead for the wand’rers away from the fold;
Pray that the Saviour may lead them tonight
Out of the darkness and into the light. [Refrain]

4 Pray with a faith that takes hold on the Lord,
Strong in the strength it has drawn from His word;
Come we with boldness, O come not with fear;
Jesus will bless us, and Jesus is here. [Refrain]
