Thou, Fount of blessing, we adore!
Lo! we unlock our lips once more
Before Thy deep of holiness,
Oh deign to hear us now and bless.
The Lord, the Maker, with us dwell,
In soul and body shield us well,
And guard us with His sleepless might
From every ill by day and night!
The Lord, the Saviour, Light Divine,
Now cause His face on us to shine,
That seeing Him, with perfect faith
We sruft His love for life and death!
The Lord, the Comforter, be near,
Imprint His image deeply here,
From bonds of sin and dread release,
And give us His unchanging peace!
O Triune God! Thou vast abyss!
Thou ever-flowing Fount of bliss,
Flow through us, heart and soul and will
With endless praise and blessing fill!
