Representative Text

1 Heavenly Father, grant thy blessing
On the teaching of this day,
That our hearts, thy fear possessing,
May from sin be turned away.

2 May the grace of Christ, our Savior,
And thje Father's boundless love,
With the Holy spirit's favor,
Rest upon us from above.

3 Have we wandered? O forgive us!
Have we wished from truth to rove?
Turn, O turn us and receive us
And incline us thee to love.

4 Thus may we abide in union
With each other and the Lord,
And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.

Amen.
