Representative Text

1 Through thy all-atoning merit,
In thy holy name alone,
Weak and helpless, yet believing,
Lord, we come before thy throne.

Let thy blessing rest upon us,
Like the early morning dew;
From the well of thy salvation
May we draw and drink anew.

2 Hear the prayers that now are rising
On the wings of faith to thee;
Feed our souls that now are hungry
With the bread of life so free. [Refrain]

3 We are looking, waiting, longing,
For a deeper work within;
For a perfect consecration
Of our hearts from ev’ry sin. [Refrain]

4 May the grace be with us ever,
In thy mercy may we hide,
And, through all our journey homeward,
Be thou still our Shield and Guide. [Refrain]
