Christian Worship Introduction To Evening Worship.

On the first Christian Sabbath eve,
When his disciples met
O’er his lost fellowship to grieve,
Nor knew the Scripture yet,-

Lo! in their midst his form was seen,-
The form in which he died;
Their Master’s marred and wounded mien,-
His hands, his feet, his side.

Then were they glad their Lord to know,
And hailed him, yet with fear;-
Jesus, again thy presence show;
Meet thy disciples here.

Be in our midst; let faith rejoice
Our risen Lord to view,
And make our spirits hear thy voice
Say, Peace be unto you!
