Command thy blessing from above,
O God! on all assembled here;
Behold us with a father's love,
While we look up with filial fear.
Command Thy blessing, Jesus! Lord!
May we Thy true disciples be;
Speak to each heart the mighty Word,
Say to the weakest, "Follow me."
Command Thy blessing in this hour,
Spirit of Truth! and fill this place
With humbling and with healing power,
With killing and with quickening grace.
O Thou, our Maker, Saviour, Guide,
One true eternal God confest!
Whom, thou hast join'd let none divide,
None dare to curse whom thou hast blest.
With thee and these for ever found,
May all the souls who here unite,
With harps and songs thy throne surround,
Rest in thy love and reign in light.
