Worship. Ps. 80. 1, 2
J. Newton C.M.
Dear Shepherd of thy people, here
Thy presence now display;
As thou hast given a place for prayer,
So give us hearts to pray.
Show us some token of thy love,
Our fainting hope to raise;
And pour thy blessings from above,
That we may render praise.
Within these walls let holy peace,
And love, and concord dwell;
Here give the troubled conscience ease;
The wounded spirit heal.
May we in faith receive thy word,
In faith present our prayers,
And, in the presence of our Lord,
Unbosom all our cares.
And may the gospel’s joyful sound,
Enforced by mighty grace,
Awaken many sinners round,
To come and fill the place.
