Brethren We Have Met to Worship

George Atkins, 1819
[Key: D]

Verse 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, & holy manna
Will be showered all around.

Verse 2
Brethren see poor sinners round you
Slumbering 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.

Verse 3
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.

Verse 4
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.
