O God of peace, thee we implore

Representative Text

1 O God of peace, Thee we implore
On us Thy richest grace to pour,
And wholly sanctify us now,
As at the mercy-seat we bow.

2 Our spirit, soul, and body, Lord,
We offer up with one accord,
And pray that these may blameless be,
Until Thy presence we shall see.

3 Faithful and able art Thou, Lord,
Who callest by Thy gracious word;
Now touch our waiting hearts anew,
And sanctify us through and through.
