We Come Today From Near And Far

We come today from near and far,
The light of hope our guiding star;
In Jesus’ name we gather here,
For strength and words of cheer.

O wondrous words, sweet words of cheer,
That Jesus speaks in tones so clear:
Still may they grow to us more dear,
While gathered in His name.

‘Tis good to meet in His blest name,
And all His wondrous love proclaim:
To find the way of life more dear,
And hear glad words of cheer. [Refrain]

O Saviour, bless our Christian band,
For Thee enlisted, heart and hand;
Incline to us Thy gracious ear,
And give us words of cheer. [Refrain]

And when we leave this hallowed place,
Oh, grant to us Thy heavenly grace;
In all our way, oh, be Thou near.
To speak glad words of cheer. [Refrain]
