    Joel Hills Johnson Music Contest First Place Hymn

    Reverently (Unison or SATB)

    In sweet remembrance of thy Son
    We gather in thy house as one
    To join in prayer, to sing thy praise,
    To worship thee and learn thy ways.
    Father, on this the Sabbath day
    Be with us gathered here we pray.
    And may our thoughts still turn to thee
    With loved ones, friends, and family.
    In all we do, till day is gone
    May worship still continue on.
    Father, on this the Sabbath day
    Be with us in our homes we pray.
    Help each to seek a quiet hour
    To read thy word and feel thy pow’r,
    To hear thy voice, though small and still,
    Renew our strength to do thy will.
    Father, on this the Sabbath day
    Be with us in our hearts we pray.

    (This hymn was written for the Sunday meeting schedule, which encourages worship at home as well as at Church.)
