We Come To Ask Thy Blessing Lord


We come to ask Thy blessing, Lord,
And worship at Thy feet;
O may The Spirit now descend,
While in Thy name we meet;
O grant that thro’ His pow’r divine,
Each heart inspired may be
To follow after righteousness,
Forgetting self in Thee.

We come to ask Thy blessing, Lord,
That we may faithful prove,
And from Thy word and Spirit learn
To trust, obey and love;
From pride of heart and vain desire,
O cleanse and make us free,
That we henceforth Thy work may do,
Forgetting self in Thee.

We know not how to ask aright,
O help us, Lord, we pray;
Uphold us by Thy heav’nly grace,
And ever guard our way;
Do Thou direct our going forth,
Our Leader ever be;
Then shall we gain the victor’s crown,
Forgetting self in Thee.
