Once more, before we part, Great God, attend our prayer

Representative Text

1 Once more before we part,
Bless the Redeemer’s Name;
Let ev’ry tongue and heart
Praise and adore the Lamb.

Refrain:
Jesus, the sinner’s Friend,
Him whom our souls adore,
His praises have no end;
Praise Him for evermore.

2 Lord, in Thy grace we came;
That blessing still impart;
We met in Jesus’ Name;
In Jesus’ Name we part. [Refrain]

3 Still on Thy holy Word
We’d live, and feed, and grow;
Go on to know the Lord,
And practice what we know. [Refrain]
