Lord, We Come before Thee Now


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.
