Now our worship sweet is o'er

Full Text

1 Now our worship sweet is o'er--
Singing, praying, teaching, hearing:
Let us gladly God adore
For His gracious strength and cheering.
Bless His Name, who fain would save us,
For the rich repast He gave us.

2 Now the blessing cheers our heart,
And the service all is ended,
Let us joyfully depart,
Be our souls to God commended:
His good Spirit ever guide us,
And with all things well provide us.

3 Let our going out be blest,
Bless our entrance in like measure;
Bless, O Lord, our toil and rest,
Bless our bread, our grief, and pleasure;
Be in death Thy blessing given;
And make us blessèd heirs of heaven!

Amen.
