Wherever Thy people meet O Jesus (Jesus where’r Thy people meet)

There they behold Thy mercy seat

Where’er they seek Thee, Thou art found,

And every place is hallow’d ground.


Dear Shepherd of Thy chosen few,

Thy former mercies here renew;

Here, to our waiting hearts, proclaim

The sweetness of Thy saving Name.


Lord, we are few, but Thou art near;

Nor short Thine arm, nor deaf Thine ear;

Lord (Oh) rend the heavens, come quickly down,

And make all our (a thousand) hearts Thine own!
