1 Bless me, O my Saviour, bless me,
Kneeling at Thy throne of grace;
Here I sought Thee, here I find Thee,
In Thine ark and resting place.
2 Blessed Saviour, Thou who gavest
Full redemption by Thy Blood,
Wash me from my foul offences,
Cleanse me, O Thou Son of God!
3 Breathe upon me, Gracious Spirit,
Benediction full and strong,
Keep my feet in safety's pathway,
Keep my soul from sin and wrong.
4 Sacred Trinity of Power,
Mystic Unity above,
Sanctify this evening hour
With Thine endless, boundless love.
5 Throned in glory, veiled in splendour,
Praised by all the heavenly host.
Hear our Holy, Holy, Holy,
Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
