By Aldo Thomas Ceresa
A G major plain tune in 4/4 time. Composed 2014.
Text from James Maxwell, 1773.
Lord, when together here we meet,
And taste thy heav'nly grace,
Thy smiles are so divinely sweet,
We're loath to leave the place.
Where sin and sorrow from each heart
And pain and grief shall fly,
And not a thought that we must part
Shall e’er disrupt our joy.
Deliver’d then from cares and pains,
Our spirits ne'er shall tire;
But in seraphic, heav'nly strains,
Redeeming love admire.
