Description

SATB a cappella with drums (congas/bongos). Setting of a Nigerian folksong. Rhythmically stirring and effective.  Would work great as a "gathering song," even though it's probably to,O long for a standard introit . Excellent part-writing.

Lyrics

Jesus, we want to meet on this thy holy day.
We gather round thy throne on this thy holy day.
Thou are our heav’nly friend,
Hear our prayers as they ascend;
Lo,Ok into our hearts and minds today,
On this thy holy day.

We kneel in awe and fear on this thy holy day.
Pray God to teach us here on this thy holy day.
Save us and cleanse our hearts, lead and guide our acts of praise,
And our faith from seed to flower raise, on this thy holy day.
