Representative Text

1 Thou gracious Lord, Creator everlasting,
Whose name is Love,
Behold us now, and bless thy waiting children
From heaven above.

Eternal Spirit, from on high descending,—
From that bright throne where purest songs are blending,—
Breathe on our souls, in supplication bending,
O Holy Dove.

2 We come to thee and plead the precious promise
One made by thee,
That in thy name where two or three are gathered
There thou would’st be. [Refrain]

3 We come to ask for zeal and Christian patience
Our cross to bear,
For strength to toil and lively faith, inspiring
Our every prayer. [Refrain]

4 More grace we need, more perfect consecration,
And deeper love;
Oh, rain upon us, Lord, thy richest blessing,
From heaven above. [Refrain]
