1. Behold, O Jesus, we implore Thee, Thy flock assembled now before Thee, That we may, Lord, Thy blessings find! O raise Thy hand in heav’nly blessing, Thy Spirit true our hearts possessing; Which makes us humble, meek and kind.
2. Thy peace shall flow upon our meeting; The kiss of faith shall be our greeting, When we are gathered by Thy side! Should only two or three assemble In Jesus’ Name, yet meek and humble, His peace and love in us abide.
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!
