580. Almighty Father, Bless the Word

1 Almighty Father, bless the Word
Which through Thy grace we now have heard.
O may the precious seed take root,
Spring up, and bear abundant fruit.

2 We praise Thee for the means of grace
As in Thy courts we seek Thy face.
Grant, Lord, that we who worship here
May all at last in heav'n appear.
