1 May God bestow on us his grace,
with blessings rich provide us;
and may the brightness of his face
to life eternal guide us,
that we his saving health may know,
his gracious will and pleasure,
and also to the heathen show
Christ's riches without measure
and unto God convert them.
2 Yours over all shall be the praise
and thanks of ev'ry nation;
and all the world with joy shall raise
the voice of exultation.
For you will judge the earth, O Lord,
forbidding sin to flourish;
your people's pasture is your Word,
their souls to feed and nourish,
in righteous paths to keep them.
3 O let the people praise your worth,
in all good works increasing;
the land shall plenteous fruit bring forth,
your Word is rich in blessing.
May God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit bless us!
Let all the world praise him alone;
let solemn awe possess us.
Now let our hearts say, "Amen!"
