Representative Text

1 We come to worship Thee, O Holy One,
Thy gracious name to own and bless;
Before Thy throne in thankfulness we bow,
Thy loving kindness to confess.

We come, come again, we come, come again
To praise the Lord, our King;
We come, come again, we come, come again
His matchless love to sing.

2 Send down Thy Holy Spirit, Lord, we pray,
To move our wayward hearts to Thee;
Fill us with sympathy and purpose true,
That faithful helpers we may be. [Refrain]

3 While here we mingle with sweet song and pray’r,
We gather strength for daily need;
O Savior, keep us all in duty’s path,
And to the heav’nly mansions lead. [Refrain]
