542 (C.M.) Wilson Thompson

Not to control the church of God

Nor bind, or rule her sons

But to associate below

With Zion's little ones,

We meet to counsel, and advise,

And hear from all around,

And sing and pray, and preach and hear,

And so our joys abound.

These seasons still from year to year

Our comforts do restore:

While love and union sweetly roll

Our Saviour we adore.

If thus to meet on earth below

So warms our hearts with love,

What raptures will His children feel

When they shall meet above!
