Lord Jesus, when your people meet

Lord Jesus, when your people meet
they come before your mercy-seat;
where you are sought, you shall be found
and every place is holy ground.

2. Your presence, by no walls confined,
is known within the humble mind;
the meek will bring you where they come
and going take you to their home.

3. Great Shepherd of your chosen few,
your former mercies here renew;
here to our waiting hearts proclaim
the greatness of your saving name.

4. Here may we prove the power of prayer
to strengthen faith and sweeten care;
to teach our faint desires to rise
and bring all heaven before our eyes.

5. Lord, we are few, but you are near;
your arm will save, your ear will hear:
O rend the heavens, come quickly down,
and make a thousand hearts your own!
