If, after church, you wait a while
Someone may greet you with a smile.
But if you rise and quickly flee
We’ll all seem cold and stiff maybe.
The one beside you in the pew
Is perhaps a stranger too.
All there, like you, have fears and cares
All of us need each others’ prayers.
In fellowship, we bid you meet,
With us, around God’s mercy-seat
