Lord, we come before Thee now,
At Thy feet we humbly bow;
Oh do not our suit disdain!
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain?

In Thine own appointed way,
Now we seek Thee, here we stay;
Lord from hence we would not go,
Till a blessing Thou bestow.

Grant that all may seek and find
Thee a God supremely kind;
Heal the sick, the captive free.
Let us all rejoice in Thee.


LORD, we come before Thee now,, Stanza 6b
