Psalm 95:6
"O come, let us worship and bow down:  let us kneel before the LORD our maker."


          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.

          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.
