O Triune God, Thy blessing great

Representative Text

1 O Triune God, Thy blessing great
Rest on our households, Church and State,
And all the godly work and worth,
That flows from them to bless the earth.

2 Bless Thou our household praise and prayer,
And sanctify domestic care;
To hearths and homes grant Thou Thy grace,
That home become a hallowed place.

3 Bless us with schools wherein are led
Thy lambs on pastures green, and fed
With bread of life, so freely given,
That they be reared as heirs of heaven.

4 Bless Thou the Word to young and old;
Bless, Lord, the Church, Thy chosen fold,
And him who cares in heavenly things,
To us and ours Thy blessing brings.
