1 Now let us come before him,
With song and prayer adore him,
Who to our life has given
All needed strength from heaven.
2 The stream of years is flowing,
And we are onward going,
From old to new surviving
And by his mercy thriving.
3 Our God his own is shielding
And help to them is yielding.
Our work will prosper never
Unless he bless it ever.
4 To all who bow before you
And for your grace implore you,
Grant, Lord, your benediction
And patience in affliction.
5 Be with the sick and ailing,
Their Comforter unfailing;
Dispel their grief and sadness,
And give them joy and gladness!
6 Above all else, Lord, send us
Your Spirit to attend us,
Within our hearts abiding,
To heav'n our footsteps guiding.
