Representative Text

1 Lord, bless the songs thy people sing,
Attune our hearts to praise;
Accept the tribute which we bring;
With gladness crown our days.

Refrain:
O bless the songs thy people sing,
And hear the pray’rs that rise;
We praise thee for the tender care
Thy wondrous love supplies.

2 O hear the pray’rs that shall ascend
On wings of faith to thee,
And answer, as thou seeest best,
Our most imperfect plea. [Refrain]

3 O lead our lives till they shall blend
As one with him we love,
Until our weary feet shall tread
The realms of peace above. [Refrain]
