Brothen, We Have Met To Worship

Cat. #0894 (MFH #79) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on August 29, 1969

VERSE 1
Brothen, we have met to worship
An' adore th Lord, our God
Will you pray with all your power
While we try to preach th word
All in vain unless th Spirit
Of th Holy One come down
Brothen, pray in Hola-manly
We'll be showered all around

VERSE 2
Sister's, will you join an' help us
Moses' sister aided him
Will you help poor trembling mourner
Who are strugglin hard with sin
Tell them all about th Saviour
Tell them that he will be found
Brothen, pray in Hola-manly
We'll be showered all around

VERSE 3
Brothen, see poor sinners 'round you
Slumbering on th banks of woe
Death is coming, Hell is moving
Can you bare to let them go
See our Fathers and our Mothers
And our childreen sink'in down
Brothen, pray in Hola-manly
We'll be showered all around

VERSE 4
Let us love our God sopremely
Let us love each other too
Let us love an' pray for sinners
Till our God makes all things new
Then he will call us home to Heaven
At his table, we'll sit down
Brothen, pray in Hola-manly
We'll be showered all around
