|NOW may the Gospelís conquering power
Be felt by all assembled here;
So shall this prove a joyful hour,
And Godís own arm of strength appear.
|2||Lord! let Thy mighty voice be heard;
Speak through the Word, and speak with power;
So shall Thy glorious name be feared
By those who never feared before.
|3||O pity those who sleep in sin,
Preserve them from the sinnerís doom;
Show them the kingdom, draw them in,
And save them from the wrath to come.
|4||So shall Thy people joyful be,
And angels shall more loudly sing,
And both ascribe the praise to Thee,
To Thee, the everlasting King!
|Thomas Kelly, 1769-1855|
