Lyrics

We gather in Thy name, O Master,
We come with one accord;
O meet with us, we pray, this moment,
Fulfill Thy holy Word.

Refrain

Meet with us, we pray,
Meet with us today,
Set our waiting hearts aflame;
Fill us with Thy love,
Sent from Heav’n above,
As we gather in Thy name.

We gather in Thy name, O Savior,
Thy grace on us bestow;
Now let us feel Thy gracious Spirit,
And with Thy love o’erflow.

Refrain

We gather in Thy name, O Spirit,
We come to worship Thee;
For Thou dost save us thro’ Thy merit,
To all eternity.
