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
