A BLESSING IMPLORED




Lord, we come before Thee now,
At Thy feet we humbly bow;
Oh, do not our suit disdain!
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain?


Lord, on Thee our souls depend;
In compassion now descend,
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace,
Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.


In Thine own appointed way
Now we seek Thee, here we stay.
Lord, we know not how to go
Till a blessing Thou bestow.


Send some message from Thy Word
That may joy and peace afford;
Let Thy Spirit now impart
Full salvation to each heart.


Comfort those who weep and mourn,
Let the time of joy return;
Those that are cast down lift up,
Make them strong in faith and hope.


Grant that all may seek and find
Thee a gracious God and kind.
Heal the sick, the captive free;
Let us all rejoice in Thee.

Lord, we come before Thee now,
At Thy feet we humbly bow;
Thou dost not our suit disdain;
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain?


In Thine own appointed way
here we meet to praise and pray,.
Lord, from hence we would not go,
Till a blessing Thou bestow.


Give effect unto thy word,
Strength and peace to us afford;
Through thy Spirit now impart,
Grace to every waiting heart.


Thou art merciful and kind,
May we all thy mercy find;
Thy abounding goodness see,
And rejoice to trust in thee.
