Alto: Miss Leila Underwood, 1902
Lyrics: Simon Browne, 1720
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
Frequent the day of God returns
To shed its quick’ning beams;
And yet how slow devotion burns,
How languid are its flames.

Increase, O Lord, our faith and hope,
And fit us to ascend,
Where the assembly ne’er breaks up,
And sabbaths never end.
