Lord, We Come before Thee Now



  1. 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. 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. 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. 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.
