Representative Text

1 We come once again our Redeemer to meet,
We turn from the world and its care;
To worship the King as we bow at His feet,
And seek for His blessing in prayer.

And now may His promise to us be fulfilled,
That He in our midst will appear;
And then we shall sing in the fullness of joy,
Praise the Lord, it is good to be here.

2 We come where so oft we have gathered before,
His blessed communion to share;
Our souls to refresh at the fountain of grace,
And seek His direction in prayer. [Refrain]

3 We come in His name, as He taught us to come,
Who knows every burden we bear;
Still resting our hope on the strength of His word,
We know He will answer our prayer. [Refrain]
