Praise to thee, O Lord we render

Representative Text

1 Praise to Thee, O Lord, we render
For Thy love in Jesus shown;
May that love, so strong and tender,
Bind us fast to Him alone;
Now and ever, now and ever,
Gather us among Thine own.

2 By Thy Spirit’s power renewing,

Now and ever, now and ever,
In our hearts may He abide.

3 Visit us with Thy salvation,
Guard us by Thy power divine,
Make our house Thy habitation,
Make each heart Thy peaceful shrine;
Now and ever, now and ever,
Make us, Lord, and keep us Thine.
