Now, gracious Lord, Thine arm reveal,
And make Thy glory known;
Now let us all Thy presence feel,
And soften hearts of stone!

Help us to venture near Thy throne,
And plead a Savior’s name;
For all that we can call our own,
Is vanity and shame.

From all the guilt of former sin
May mercy set us free;
And let the year we now begin,
Begin and end with Thee.

Send down Thy Spirit from above
That saints may love Thee more;
And sinners now may learn to love
Who never loved before.

And when before Thee we appear
In our eternal home;
May growing numbers worship here,
And praise Thee in our room.
