1 Brethren, we have met to worship
and adore the Lord our God;
will you pray with all your power,
while we try to preach the word?
All is vain, unless the Spirit
of the Holy One comes down:
Brethren, pray, and holy manna
will be showered all around.

2 Sisters, will you join and help us?
Moses' sisters aided him;
will you help the trembling mourners
who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior--
tell them that he will be found:
Sisters, pray, and holy manna
will be showered all around.

4 Let us love our God supremely,
let us love each other too;
let us love and pray for sinners
till our God makes all things new.
Then he'll call us home to heaven,
at his table we'll sit down;
Christ will gird himself and serve us
with sweet manna all around.
