Representative Text

1 O Saviour, we ask that Thy Spirit may come,
And fill with Thy glory our dear Sabbath Home;
We ask that Thy presence by faith we may see,
While gathered to render our homage to Thee.

O come, dear Saviour, O come, we pray,
And shine on this word as we read it today.

2 We thank Thee for all thy protection and care,
For blessings and mercies we constantly share;
But most we adore Thee that we may receive
The joys that are promised to them that believe. [Refrain]

3 We pray Thee, dear Saviour, our hearts to prepare
To dwell in those mansions so lovely and fair,
Which Thou hast provided for those who have heard
And followed the truth that is taught in Thy word. [Refrain]
