Prayer. Matt. 18. 20; Exod. 20. 24

D. Herbert      C.M.

1
Come, thou Almighty Comforter,
And bring upon thy wing
Sweet consolation to each soul,
That we may praise and sing.

2
We want to feel, we want to see,
We want to know thee more;
We want sweet foretastes of thy love,
As we have had before.

3
And shall we come in vain to God?
Dear Lord, that cannot be;
Thy promise stands engaged to come,
And bless e’en two or three.

4
Come, Lord, and grant each soul to feel
Its interest in thy grace;
And give us faith, and hope, and love,
And strength to run the race.

5
[If thou shouldst leave us, we must fall;
Without thee, cannot rise;
For when our Jesus hides his face,
Our hope, our comfort, dies.]

6
Lord, give more faith, more solid faith,
More confidence in thee;
Break off our legal chains, O God,
And let our souls go free.
