1 Now our worship sweet is o'er --
Singing, praying, teaching, hearing,
Let us gladly God adore
For His Word so true and cheering;
Bless His name, Who deigned to save us,
For the rich repast He gave us.
2 Now the blessing cheers our heart,
By His grace to us extended;
Let us joyfully depart,
Be our souls to God commended:
May His Spirit ever guide us
And with all good things provide us.
3 Let our going out be blest,
And our entrance in like measure;
Bless, O Lord, our toil and rest,
Bless our bread, our grief and pleasure;
Be in death Thy blessing given;
Make us joyful heirs of heaven.
