1 The saints appear to tread the courts
Of their dear God below;
Behold the multitude resorts
To hear the trumpet blow.
2 Lord God appear for our relief,
What can we do alone!
Come Savior, banish unbelief
And take us for thine own.
3 Our eyes O Lord, are unto thee,
Assist us, Lord, we pray;
O may thy Spirit present be!
O Lord, thy power display.
4 Jesus, let us thy gospel hear,
Teach us to know thy voice;
Make every stubborn sinner fear,
And all thy saints rejoice.
5 Come Lord, nor let us be dismayed;
Lord, hear thy people pray;
And let thy mercy be displayed
Amongst us here this day.
6 May sinners hear thy powerful call
And thy salvation see;
So shall our hearts, both one and all,
Sing songs of praise to thee.
The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
