Song for Sunday Morning

Command thy blessing from above,
O God, on all assembled here;

behold us with a Father's love,

while we look up with filial fear.

Command thy blessing, Jesus, Lord,
may we thy true disciples be;
speak to each heart the mighty word;
say to the weakest: follow me.

Command thy blessing, in this hour,
Spirit of truth, and fill this place
with humbling and with healing power,
with quickening and confirming grace.

O thou, our Maker, Savior, guide,
one true eternal God confessed,
may naught in life or death divide
the saints in thy communion blest.

James Montgomery,
(4 November 1771 – 30 April 1854)

Excellent words Gregg.

Thanks for your comment, the music has disappeared again.

An excellent Sunday prayer. Oh, that we might strive for hearts more fitted for His transcendent presence in the midst of His people on Sunday morning!
