1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
