Welcome, days of solemn meeting!
Welcome, days of praise and prayer!
Far from earthly scenes retreating,
In your blessings we would share.
Be Thou near us, blessèd Savior,
Still at morn and eve the same;
Give us faith that can not waver;
Kindle in us Heaven’s own flame.
When the fervent prayer is glowing,
Holy Spirit, hear that prayer;
When the song of praise is flowing,
Let that song Thine impress bear.
