    Verse 1
    Jesus, where'er Thy people meet,
    There they behold Thy mercy-seat;
    Where'er they seek Thee Thou art found,
    And every place is hallowed ground.

    Verse 2
    For Thou, within no wall confined,
    Inhabitest the humble mind;
    Such ever bring Thee where they come,
    And going take Thee to their home.

    Verse 3
    Dear Shepherd of Thy chosen few,
    Thy former mercies here renew;
    Here, to our waiting hearts, proclaim
    The sweetness of Thy saving Name.

    Verse 4
    Here may we prove the power of prayer
    To strengthen faith and sweeten care;
    To teach our faint desires to rise,
    And bring all heaven before our eyes.

    Verse 5
    Lord, we are few, but Thou art near;
    Nor short Thine arm, nor deaf Thine ear;
    O rend the heavens, come quickly down,
    And make a thousand hearts Thine own!
