1 Lord, cause Thy face on us to shine,
Give us Thy peace and seal us Thine;
Teach us to prize the means of grace
And love Thine earthly dwelling-place.
2 One is our faith, and one our Lord;
One body, Spirit, hope, reward:
May we in one communion be
One with each other, one with Thee.
3 Bless all whose voice salvation brings,
Who minister in holy things;
Our pastors, elders, deacons, bless;
Cloth them with zeal and righteousness:
4 Let many in the judgment day,
Turned from the error of their way,
Their hope, their joy, their crown appear:--
Save those who preach and those who hear.

Lord, cause Thy face on us to shine. T. Cotterill. [For a Blessing on Ministers and People.] Contributed to the 8th edition of his Selection, 1819, No. 28, in 3 stanzas of 8 lines, and headed, "For God's blessing on His Ministers and People." Although not repeated in the 9th edition, 1820, it was included in other hymnbooks, and is still in common use. The hymn, "O King of Salem, Prince of Peace," in W. F. Stevenson's Hymns for Church and Home, 1873, and other collections, begins with stanza ii. of this hymn.
