1 Now, gracious Lord, thine arm reveal,
And make thy glory known;
Now let us all thy presence feel,
And soften hearts of stone!
2 Help us to venture near thy throne,
And plead a Savior's name;
For all that we can call our own,
Is vanity and shame.
3 From all the guilt of former sin
May mercy set us free;
And let the year we now begin,
Begin and end with thee.
4 Send down thy spirit from above,
That saints may love thee more;
And sinners now may learn to love
Who never loved before.
5 And when before thee we appear
In our eternal home;
May growing numbers worship here,
And praise thee in our room.
