57. On what has now been sown

1 On what has now been sown,
Thy blessing, Lord, bestow;
The power is Thine alone
To make it spring and grow:
Do Thou in grace the harvest raise,
And Thou alone shalt have the praise.

2 To Thee our wants are known,
From Thee are all our powers,
Accept what is Thine own
And pardon what is ours:
Our praises, Lord, and prayers receive
And to Thy Word a blessing give.

3 O grant that each of us,
Now met before Thee here,
May meet together thus,
When Thou and Thine appear,
And follow Thee to heaven our home;
Even so, Amen, Lord Jesus, come!
