Father, we come in Jesus’ name,
To worship at this place;
Do Thou with love our hearts inflame,
And give us peace and grace.

We know not how to come aright,
Except Thou be our guide;
Fill Thou our hearts with heav’nly light,
And with us now abide.

Give grace to hear and sing Thy praise,
And grace for Thee to live;
Keep us, O Lord, in all Thy ways,
To us Thy Spirit give.

Moment by moment be Thou near,
And keep us in Thy love;
And when our life is ended here,
Take us to Thee above.
