1 GATHERED to Thy name Lord Jesus,
Gathered here with one accord,
Thine own self we own among us,
Faithful to Thy promised word;
May our eyes on Thee, blest Saviour,
Rest with one unceasing gaze,
And our hearts, with Thee enraptured,
Overflow with songs of praise.
2 As we wait in Thine own presence,
Brought by Thee to God so nigh,
As we solemnly remember,
Thou for us didst deign to die,
May our souls bow down before Thee
Who didst bear our every sin,
And in hallowed sweet communion
Here below Thy praise begin.
