Representative Text

1 O Lord, who art with two or three,
Met in Thy name to worship Thee;
Grant Thou that we may know Thee near,
And Thy sweet Spirit’s whisper hear.

2 Touch’d with the feeling of our woe,
Thou dost our need and nature know;
Oh, may we now, to seek Thy face,
Come boldly to a throne of grace.

3 Thou art our helper, ever near,
Thou knowest all we feel or fear;
Bless us in whom Thy grace hath wrought,
Above our pray’r, above our thought.

4 We know not how to ask aright,
Unless Thy Spirit gives us light,
Oh, in the deep, unspoken cries,
Make all our wants and needs to rise.
