1 Lord, cause Thy face on us to shine,
Give us Thy peace and seal us Thine;
Teach us to prize the means of grace
And love Thine earthly dwelling-place.
2 One is our faith, and one our Lord;
One body, Spirit, hope, reward:
May we in one communion be
One with each other, one with Thee.
3 Bless all whose voice salvation brings,
Who minister in holy things;
Our pastors, elders, deacons, bless;
Cloth them with zeal and righteousness:
4 Let many in the judgment day,
Turned from the error of their way,
Their hope, their joy, their crown appear:--
Save those who preach and those who hear.
