CGS Lyrics
Verse 1
O how blest the hour, Lord Jesus,
When we can to Thee draw near,
Promises so sweet and precious
From Thy gracious lips to hear.

Verse 2
Be with us this day to bless us,
That we may not hear in vain;
With the saving truths impress us,
Which the words of life contain.

Verse 3
Look down as we seek salvation,
Sitting at Thy feet, good Lord;
We are waiting, in deep silence,
To hear Thy sweet Voice Divine.

Verse 4
Open Thou our minds, and lead us
Safely on our heavenward way;
With the lamp of truth precede us,
That we may not go astray

Verse 5
Make us gentle, meek, and humble,
And yet bold in doing right;
Scatter darkness, lest we stumble;
Men walk safely in the light

Verse 6
Lord, endue thy word from heaven
With such light, and love, and power,
That in us its silent leaven
May work on from hour to hour

Verse 7
Give us grace to bear our witness
To the truths we have embraced,
And let others both their sweetness
And their quickening virtue taste.
