IN Thy name, O Lord, assembling,
   We Thy people, now draw near;
Teach us to rejoice with trembling,
    Speak, and let Thy servants hear,
        Hear with meekness,
    Hear Thy Word with godly fear.
2  Grant us, Lord, some gracious token
    Of Thy love before we part;
Crown Thy Word which shall be spoken;
    Life and peace to each impart,
        With all blessings
    Which will sanctify the heart.
3  While our days on earth are lengthened,
    May we give them, Lord, to Thee:
Cheered by hope, and daily strengthened,
    May we run, nor weary be;
        Till Thy glory,
    Without clouds in Heaven we see.
4  There in worship, purer, sweeter,
    All Thy people shall adore;
Tasting of enjoyment greater
    Than they could conceive before;
        Full enjoyment,
    In the Glory, evermore.
Thomas Kelly, 1769-1855
