Brethren, We Have Met to Worship





















Brethren We Have Met To Worship


1. Brethren, we have met to worship and adore the Lord our God;
Will you pray with all your power, while we try to preach the Word?
All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down;
Brethren, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.


2. Brethren, see poor sinners round you slumbering on the brink of woe;
Death is coming, hell is moving, can you bear to let them go?
See our fathers and our mothers, and our children sinking down;
Brethren, pray and holy manna will be showered all around.


3. Sisters, will you join and help us? Moses' sister aided him;
Will you help the trembling mourners who are struggling hard with sin?
Tell them all about the Savior, tell them that He will be found;
Sisters, pray, and holy manna will be showered all around.

4. Is there here a trembling jailer, seeking grace, and filled with tears?
Is there here a weeping Mary, pouring forth a flood of tears?
Brethren, join your cries to help them; sisters, let your prayers abound;
Pray, Oh pray that holy manna may be scattered all around.


5. Let us love our God supremely, let us love each other, too;
Let us love and pray for sinners, till our God makes all things new.
Then He'll call us home to Heaven, at His table we'll sit down;
Christ will gird Himself and serve us with sweet manna all around.

I remember singing this a long time ago but the words were not the same.the first verse sounds the same.

Still having trouble with this gizmo. I have lost all my pretty teapots again and have no idea why. Just might have to chaqnged computers with Silas, but don't tell him.lol

After waiting 5 months I have my appointment date with the Rheumatologist. I really think it is all fibromyalgia. I am still praying for you on the 20th. Lots of love.

This is one I don't know, Barbara. I know about 99% of all of the old hymns--but somehow, I missed this one. Thanks for sharing.

Hope you had a blessed Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy
