1 Abba, Father, God of love!
Send thy blessing from above;
Light and life to all impart;
Shine on each believing heart;
Kindly comfort all who mourn,
Into joy their sorrow turn;

2 Joy which none can take away,
Joy which shall for ever stay;
All thy kingdom from above,
All the happiness of love;
Be it to thy servants given,
Pardon, holiness, and heaven.

3 Glorious in thy saints appear,
Plant thy heavenly kingdom here;
Faith and love and joy increase,
Temperance and gentleness;
Plant in us an humble mind,
Patient, pitiful, and kind;

4 Meek and lowly let us be,
Full of goodness, full of thee;
Make us all in thee complete,
Make us all for glory meet,
Meet to appear before thy sight,
Partners with the saints in light.

5 Let us, in our spirits, prove
All the depths of humble love;
Let us, in our lives, express
All the heights of holiness;
To thy church the pattern give,
Shew how true believers live.

6 When the glorious race is run,
Fought the fight, the battle won;
Let us then with joy remove
To thy family above;
On the wings of angels fly,
Shew how true believers die.
