Holy Father, Send Thy Blessing

Representative Text

1 Holy Father, send Thy blessing
On Thy children gathered here;
Let them all, Thy love confessing,
Be to Thee forever dear.

Send the blessing, send the blessing
On Thy children gathered here;
Send the blessing, send the blessing,
Grant us all Thy love and cheer.

2 Blessed Saviour, who in meekness
Didst vouchsafe a child to be,
Guide their steps and help their weakness,
Bless, and make them like to Thee. [Refrain]

3 Spread Thy wings of mercy o’er them,
Grant Thy Spirit from above;
Be their shield, and go before them,
Give them peace and joy and love. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
