Now, the hour of worship o'er

Representative Text

1 Now, the hour of worship o'er,
Teaching, hearing, praying, singing,
Let us gladly God adore,
For his Word our praises bringing;
For the rich repast he gave us
Praise the Lord, who deigned to save us.

2 Now the blessing cheers our heart,
By his grace to us extended.
Let us joyfully depart;
Be our souls to God commended.
May his Spirit ever guide us
And with all good gifts provide us.
