Lyrics

Jesus, we love to meet on this Thy holy day;
We worship round Thy seat on this Thy holy day;
Thou tender, heavenly Friend, to Thee our prayers as­cend;
O’er our young spirits bend on this Thy holy day.

We dare not trifle now, on this Thy holy day;
In silent awe we bow, on this Thy holy day;
Check every wandering thought, and let us all be taught
To serve Thee as we ought on this Thy holy day.

We listen to Thy Word on this Thy holy day;
Bless all that we have heard on this Thy holy day;
Go with us when we part, and to each troubled heart
Thy saving grace impart on this Thy holy day.
