1 Once more we come, God’s word to hear,
The word so pure and holy;
Now grant us, Lord, a listening ear,
A spirit meek and lowly;
For if we hear, and heed it not,

We hear for condemnation;
For "doers of the word," we’re taught,
Are heirs of Christ’s salvation.

2 The life of God is in the word;
And whosoe’er believeth
The record there of Christ the Lord
Eternal life receiveth;
But if we hear, believing not, [Refrain]

3 The word of God, by faith received,
Imparts regeneration;
And he who hath in Christ believed,
Lives out a new creation;
But if we hear, and do it not, [Refrain]

4 So when the word of God we hear,
Let us be humbly pleading
The Holy Ghost to give us light,
As we the word are heeding;
But if we hear, and feel it not, [Refrain]
