1 Again our earthly cares we leave
And to Thy courts repair;
Again with joyful feet we come,
To meet our Savior there.
2 Great Shepherd of Thy people, hear;
Thy presence now display:
We bow within Thy house of prayer;
Oh! give us hearts to pray.
3 The clouds which veil Thee from our sight,
In pity, Lord! remove:
Dispose our hearts to hear aright
The message of Thy love
4 Impressed with holy fear and love,
We kneel before Thy face:
Oh! may the children of Thy power
Be children of Thy grace!

Again our earthly cares we leave. [Divine Worship.] Appeared in Cotterill’s Selection 1810, No. 98, in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and entitled, "For the blessing of God on Public Worship." It is based on J. Newton's "O Lord, our languid souls inspire," st. ii. being specially from Newton. The cento was most probably arranged and rewritten by Cotterill. Its use in Great Britain is somewhat limited, but in America it is extensive, and is given in the collections of various denominations.
