Full Text

[CLASS RECITATION:
Guarded by his presence,
Absent though we be
Each one from the other,
God the heart can see.

All the life is precious,
All the love we feel,
Every earnest purpose,
Each to "lift" he 'll seal.

So our prayer, united,
Now, in faith we 'll raise,
"Watch between us always,"
And thy name we 'll praise.

LEADER:
The Lord bless thee and keep thee, etc.

RESPONSE:]
Let this benediction from the "Three in One,"
Be to every member in its fulness known,
May the Lord of Glory bless and keep "his own,"
Light redemption's story from his gracious throne,
Countenance uplifted, 'neath the radiant crown,
Through the heavens, rifted, may sweet peace flow down.
