Representative Text

1 We bless Thy name, O Lord,
While in Thy house we meet,
To lift our grateful hearts to Thee,
And worship at Thy feet.

We bless Thy name, O Lord,
For Thy protecting care,
That gives to us with joy again,
This hallowed hour of prayer.

2 Thro’ all our fleeting years,
Thy word has been our stay,
It brought us safe within the fold,
When we were far away. [Refrain]

3 Do Thou our love inspire;
And still our faith increase;
Confirm our hopes and keep us, Lord,
In bonds of perfect peace. [Refrain]

4 In all our coming days,
O still our refuge be,
And may we all in simple faith,
Cling closer unto Thee. [Refrain]
