1 O risen Christ, who from Thy throne
Dost rule Thy Church, and hear Thine own,
Now seal by Thine almighty power
The covenants of this sacred hour.
2 Weave Thou Thy life through these new ties:
The light of love that round Thee lies
Circle the shepherd and the sheep,
And all our lives in safety keep.
3 The shepherd's Shepherd only Thou
Canst be: O Christ, walk with him now;
While our weak hands reach up to Thine,
To strengthen his with might Divine.
4 Thou in whose love Thy Church is blest,
Thy name alone be here confessed,
By holy lives be glorified,
While here Thy peace shall still abide.
The Hymnal: Published by the authority of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., 1895
