Brethren, We Have Met to Worship

Brethren, We Have Met to Worship

George Atkins, 1819.

    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.
    Brethren, see poor sinners round you slumb’ring 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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
