PRAYER AND ASPIRATION


83 From Every Stormy Wind That Blows
(RETREAT. L. M.)
Hugh Stowell,1828 Thomas Hastings,1842
 
  1. From every stormy wind that blows,
    From every swelling tide of woes,
    There is a calm, a sure re-treat;
    'Tis found beneath the mercy-seat.
  2. There is a place where Jesus sheds
    The oil of gladness on our heads,
    A place than all beside more sweet;
    It is the blood-bought mercy-seat.
  3. There is a spot where spirits blend,
    Where friend holds fellowship with friend ;
    Tho' sundered far, by faith they meet
    Around one common mercy-seat.
  4. There,there,on eagle's wing we soar,
    And time and sense seem all no more,
    And heaven comes down,our souls to greet,
    And glory crowns the mercy-seat. Amen.


84 Lord, We Come Before Thee Now
(ST. BEES. 7,7,7,7)
Hammond William,1745 John Bacchus Dykes,1874
 
  1. Lord, we come before thee now,
    At thy feet we humbly bow;
    O do not our suit disdain,
    Shall we seek thee, Lord in vain?
  2. Lord, on thee our souls depend;
    In compassion, now descend,
    Fill our hearts with thy rich grace,
    Tune our lips to sing thy praise.
  3. Send some message from thy word,
    That may joy and peace afford;
    Let thy Spirit now impart
    Full salvation to each heart.
  4. Comfort those who weep and mourn,
    Let the time of joy return;
    Those that are cast down lift up,
    Strong in faith, in love, and hope. Amen.
