We Come O Lord Before Thy Throne

We come, O Lord, before Thy throne,
And, with united plea,
We meet and pray for those who roam
Far off upon the sea.

Oh, may the Holy spirit bow
The sailor’s heart to Thee,
Till tears of deep repentance flow
Like rain-drops on the sea.

Then may a Saviour’s dying love
Pour peace into his breast,
And waft him to the port above,
Of everlasting rest.
