Once again, before thy throne

Representative Text

1 Once again, before Thy throne,
Lord, we meet Thy name to praise,
For Thy grace and mercy shown,
For the joy that crowns our days.

Thou, on Whom we cast our care,
Deign to bless this hour of pray’r;
Give us faith, that we may be
One in heart, and one in Thee.

2 Thro' the cross where Thou hast died,
Lift our souls this world above;
May we still for refuge hide,
In Thy all-redeeming love. [Chorus]

3 Then, at last, when time shall cease,
When on earth no more we roam,--
At the gate of rest and peace,
May we hear Thy “Welcome home.” [Chorus]
