We, who in God’s name are here assembled, Solemnly do clasp our hands; That Christ’s death and suff’ring be remembered, Faithfully for Him to stand. Thus in unison our hearts have spoken. Lord, to show Thy favor give the token; Speak Thy blessing ever true; “Amen,” Peace be unto you.
Special thanks to the Apostolic Christians who diligently labored to keep their rich musical heritage alive when most other denominations forsook it in the challenging battle of changing cultures. Thanks be to those souls who labored to write and compose this treasure of praise, many now only known to GOD!
