Father again in Jesus Name we meet




Father, again in
Jesus' Name we meet,
and bow in penitence
beneath your feet;
again to you
our feeble voices raise,
to sue for mercy,
and to sing your praise.


O we would bless you for
your ceaseless care,
and all your works
from day to day declare;
is not our life with
hourly mercies crowned?
does not your arm
encircle us around?


alas, unworthy of
your boundless love,
too oft with careless feet
from you we rove;
but now, encouraged
by your voice, we come,
returning sinners
to a Father's home.


O by that Name in whom
all fulness dwells,
O by that love
which ev'ry love excels,
O by that blood
so freely shed for sin,
open blest mercy's gate
and take us in.

Father, again in Jesus' Name we meet,
and bow in penitence beneath thy feet;
again to thee our feeble voices raise,
to sue for mercy, and to sing thy praise.


O we would bless thee for thy ceaseless care,
and all thy work from day to day declare;
is not our life with hourly mercies crowned?
does not thy arm encircle us around?


alas, unworthy of thy boundless love,
too oft our feet from thee, our Father rove;
but now, encouraged by your voice, we come,
To seek with steadfast faith our heavenly home.


Oh, by that name, in which all fulness dwells,
Oh, by that love which every love excels,
Oh, by that blood so freely shed for sin,
Grant us, through grace, eternal life to win.
