1 Blessed Spirit, rest, we pray,
In our Sunday School today;
Teachers now and scholars bless,
Clothe us with Thy righteousness.

2 While we read Thy word divine,
Lord, to Thee our hearts incline;
May we long to know and see,
Blessed Saviour, more of Thee.

3 While our cheerful songs we raise,
Fill our souls with grateful praise;
Grant we all may sing above,
Sweeter songs of endless love.
