1. Present with the two or three
 Deign, most gracious God, to be,
 While our souls we lift to thee.

2. Jesus, by thy blood alone
 Who didst for our sins atone,
 Dare we come before thy throne.

3. Thou who knowest all our need,
 Grant thy prayer of faith to plead,
 Teach us how to intercede.

4. Holy Spirit, from on high
 Helping our infirmity,
 Aid us in our feeble cry.

5. Flesh and heart would faint and fail,
 But there stands within the veil
 One who ever doth prevail.

6. Glory to the Father, Son,
 Holy Spirit, Three in One,
 While the endless ages run.
