Representative Text

1 Now we have met in Jesus' name,
To glorify our Lord we aim;
We strive each duty to fulfill,
With anxious thoughts to do his will.

2 We've met in love and holy fear,
To hear the happy saints declare
The rich compassion of a God
The virtues of a Saviour's blood.

3 O Saviour, help them to express
The wonders of triumphant grace,
While to the church they freely own
What for their souls the Lord hath done.
