1991 Denson Revision
to the Cooper book version of this tune


Lord, we come before Thee now,
At Thy feet we humbly bow;
Oh, do not our suit disdain;
Shall we seek Thee, Lord, in vain?

Lord, on Thee our souls depend;
In compassion now descend;
Fill our hearts with Thy rich grace,
Tune our lips to sing Thy praise.

In Thine own appointed way
Now we seek Thee, here we stay.
Lord, we know not how to go
Till a blessing Thou bestow.

Comfort those who weep and mourn,
Let the time of joy return;
Those who are cast down lift up,
Strong in faith, in love, and hope.

Grant that all may seek and find
Thee a God supremely kind.
Heal the sick, the captive free;
Let us all rejoice in Thee.

William Hammond
Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, 1745.
