Thou delightest, O Lord, when Thy children draw near
To worship and praise and confess;
Now banish our sorrow, our doubt and our fear;
Be present to guide and to bless.
Touch our ears with Thy finger, and then we shall hear
Soft voices that speak from Thy Word;
Touch our eyes into seeing, and then shall appear
The glory of Jesus, our Lord.
Be the words of our tongues, and the theme of our song;
Be our purpose, our praise, and our prayer;
And be to us here what Thou art to the throng
Of angels that worship Thee there.
