The Hymnal Of The Protestant Episcopal Church In The Usa by Various

Church Building and Consecration 459. Jesus! where'er thy people meet

L.M.

Hebron (Mason):

Lowell Mason, 1830

William Cowper, 1769;

Alt.

Jesus! where'er thy people meet,

There they behold thy mercy-seat;

Where'er they seek thee, thou art found,

And every place is hallowed ground.

And since within no walls confined,

Thou dwellest in the humble mind:

Let all within thy house who come,

Departing, take thee to their home.

Yet everywhere thou guid'st thine own

To raise for thee an earthly throne;

And where thy Name thou dost record,

There thou wilt come and bless them, Lord!

Great Shepherd of thy chosen few,

Thy former mercies here renew;

And here to wayward hearts proclaim

The sweetness of thy saving Name!

Here may we prove the might of prayer,

To strengthen faith and sweeten care:

To teach our faint desires to rise,

And bring all heaven before our eyes!

Here to the babe newborn on earth,

Grant thou the newer, better birth;

By water and the Holy Ghost

Restoring all that Adam lost.

Here to the weary, hungry soul,

Give thou the gift that maketh whole;

The bread that is Christ's Flesh, for food,

The wine that is the Savior's Blood.

Lord, we are few, but thou art near;

Nor short thine arm, nor deaf thine ear;

O rend the heavens, come quickly down,

And make a thousand hearts thine own!

Amen.
