O Lord, Thy benediction giveAuthor: John Armstrong

1 O Lord, Thy benediction give
On all who teach, on all who learn,
So that Thy church may holier live,
And every lamp more brightly burn.
2 Give those who teach pure hearts of love—
Hearts filled with faith and warmed by prayer—
And souls attuned to Thee above,
That they may guide Thy people there.
3 Give those that learn the willing ear,
The spirit meek, the guileless mind.
Such gifts will make the lowliest here
Far better than a kingdom find.
4 O bless the shepherd, bless the sheep,
That guide and guided both be one,
One in the faithful watch they keep,
One in the joy of work well done.
