1 In Thy great name, O Lord, we come,
To worship at Thy feet;
Oh, may Thy holy Spirit rest
On all that now shall meet.

2 We come to hear Jehovah speak,
To hear the Saviour’s voice:
Thy face and favor, Lord, we seek,
Now make our hearts rejoice.

3 Teach us to pray and praise, and hear,
And understand Thy word;
To feel Thy blissful presence near,
And trust our living Lord.

4 Here let Thy power and grace be felt;
Thy love and mercy known;
Our icy hearts, dear Jesus, melt,
And break this flinty stone.

5 Let sinners, Lord, Thy goodness prove,
And saints rejoice in Thee;
Let rebels be subdued by love,
And to the Saviour flee.

6 This house with grace and glory fill,
This congregation bless;
Thy great salvation now reveal,
Thy glorious righteousness.
