Reel 293, Item 11
Brethren, We Have Met to Worship
Brethren, we have met to worship And adore the Lord our God,
Will you pray with all your power, While we try to preach the word.
All is vain, unless the Spirit Of the Holy One comes down,
Let us pray that holy manna May be scatter'd all around.
Look, and see poor sinners round you Trembling on the brink of woe,
Death is coming, how alarming Can you bear to let them go,
Let us tell them of the Saviour,
Tell them that he may be found.
Let us pray that holy manna May be scattered all around.
Is there here a trembling jailer Seeking grace, and filled with fear,
Is there here a weeping Mary,
Pouring forth a flood of tears.
Let us join our prayers to help them, Let our faith and love abound Let us pray that holy manna May be scattered all around.
Let us love our God supremely Let us love each other too,
Let us love and pray for sinners,
Till our God their souls renew,
Then we'll love them still the better, Take them to our kind embrace,
Journey with them, on to glory,
There to sing redeeming grace.
