Lord, We Come before Thee Now
1. Lord, we come before thee now; At thy feet we humbly bow. Do not thou our suit disdain; Shall we seek thee, Lord, in vain?
2. In thine own appointed way, Now we seek thee; here we stay. Lord, from hence we would not go, Till a blessing thou bestow.
3. Send some message from thy word That may joy and peace afford. Comfort those who weep and mourn; Let the time of love return.
4. Grant we all may seek and find Thee, our gracious God, and kind. Heal the sick; the captive free. Let us all rejoice in thee.
