SOCIAL WORSHIP




Jesus, where’er Thy people meet,
There they behold Thy mercy seat;
Where’er they seek Thee Thou art found,
And every place is hallowed ground.


For Thou, within no walls confined,
Inhabitest the humble mind;
Such ever bring Thee, where they come,
And, going, take Thee to their home.


Great Shepherd of Thy chosen few,
Thy former mercies here renew;
Here, to our waiting hearts, proclaim
The sweetness of Thy saving Name.


Here may we prove the power of prayer
To strengthen faith and sweeten care;
To teach our faint desires to rise,
And bring all heaven before our eyes.


Behold at Thy commanding word,
We stretch the curtain and the cord;
Come Thou, and fill this wider space,
And bless us with a large increase.


Lord, we are few, but Thou art near;
Nor short Thine arm, nor deaf Thine ear;
O rend the heavens, come quickly down,
And make a thousand hearts Thine own!


---Alternative verses---


Jesus, where’er Thy people meet,
They may approach the mercy seat;
Where’er they seek Thee Thou art found,
And every place is hallowed ground.


For Thou, within no walls confined,
Inhabitest the humble mind;
Such find thee still their joy, their light,
At home, abroad, by day, by night.


Kind Shepherd of Thy chosen few,
Thy former mercies here renew;
Here, to our waiting souls proclaim
The virtues of Thy saving Name.


Dear Shepherd of Thy chosen few,
Thy former mercies here renew;
Here, to our waiting hearts, proclaim
The sweetness of Thy saving Name.


Here may we prove the force of prayer
To strengthen faith to sweeten care;
And fit us for that blessed abode,
Where we shall see the face of God.
