We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Once more dear brethren here we meet

Representative Text

1 Once more dear brethren here we meet,
To fall before thy mercy seat;
And saints whom Jesus deigns to own,
May claim a blessing from his throne.

2 If we have met in Jesus' name,
Our wants, our hopes, and prayers the same;
Our savior in the midst will be,
And make each cloud of darkness flee.

3 A blessing that we can't receive,
And such alone as God can give;
If then to day we stand in want,
Our Savior promises to grant.

4 Then let us in our needy case,
Come boldly to the throne of grace;
And for those favors that we need,
Devoutly at the altar plead.

5 Grant us thy blessing while we stay;
Bless all the duties of the day;
That at the close, with hearts sincere,
We'll say 'twas good that we were here.

6 Pardon Oh! Lord our every sin,
Bless us without, bless us within,
Forgive our crimes, our country spare,
And make each house, a house of prayer.

Divine Hymns of Spiritual Songs, 1802
