Christian Worship Invoking A Blessing.
Lord! when thy people seek thy face,
And dying sinners pray to live,
Hear thou in heaven, thy dwelling-place,
And, when thou hearest, O forgive!
Here, when thy messengers proclaim
The blessed Gospel of thy Son,
Still, by the power of his great name,
Be mighty signs and wonders done.
But will indeed Jehovah deign
Here to abide, no transient guest?
Here will the world’s Redeemer reign,
And here the Holy Spirit rest?
That glory never hence depart!
Yet choose not, Lord, this house alone;
Thy kingdom come to every heart,
In every bosom fix thy throne.
