Christian Worship Brethren, Beloved For Jesus’ Sake

Brethren, beloved for Jesus’ sake,
A hearty welcome here receive;
May we together now partake
The joys which he alone can give.

May he by whose kind care we meet,
Send his good Spirit from above,
Make our communion pure and sweet,
And cause our hearts to burn with love.

Forgotten be each worldly theme,
When thus we meet, to pray and praise;
We but desire to speak of him,
And of his holy word and ways.

Thus as the moments pass away,
We’ll love, and wonder and adore;
Then hasten on, the glorious day,
When we shall meet to part no more.
