1 Now from the altar of our hearts
Let flames of love arise;
Assist us, Lord, to offer up
Our evening sacrifice.
2 Minutes and mercies multiplied
Have made up all this day;
Minutes came quick, but mercies were
More swift, more free than they.
3 New times, new favors, and new joys
Do a new song require;
Till we shall praise Thee as we would,
Accept our hearts' desires.
