C.M.


1
LORD, it has touched our hearts that Thou
Shouldst now for us provide
A rich occasion, Thee to know,
Where Thou hast been denied.
2
Thy grace, O Lord, has furnished now
A blessèd calm retreat;
Thy saints assembled gladly bow,
And here Thyself would greet.
3
Acknowledging Thy love's own claim,
The Spirit giving power,
As gathered to Thy precious Name,
We bless Thee for this hour.
4
The love that gave Thyself for us
Forgotten cannot be;
Its fresh appeal - a joy to those
Who now remember Thee.

J. Watson
