Met again in Jesus’ name,
At His throne we humbly bow.
He is evermore the same:
Lo! He waits to meet us now.

In His name, if two or three
Meet, and for His mercy call,
There, the Savior saith, “I’ll be
In the midst, to bless you all.

You shall never ask in vain,
Though your number be but few:
Firm the promise doth remain;
Lo! I always am with you.

Savior, we believe the word;
Calmly wait the promised grace.
Spirit of our risen Lord,
Holy Spirit, fill the place!
