Representative Text

1 Thy blessing is upon us,
O Lord of hosts most high,
We read it in the beauty
Of land and sea and sky;
We hear it in the music,
That Summer’s voices sing,
They tell the wondrous glory
Of our eternal King.

Refrain:
Before Thy throne in praise we bow,
Thy holy Name we sing,
Thy blessing rests upon us now,
Our Lord, our Maker and our King.

2 Thy blessing is upon us,
As in Thy house we meet,
Thy Name to sing with praises,
Thy gospel to repeat;
At this most blessed season,
By youthful voices sung,
Thy Name, with glad rejoicing,
Is heard from ev’ry tongue. [Refrain]

3 Thy blessing is upon us,
We feel Thy presence here,
The summer’s grateful tribute,
Proclaims Thee ever near;
Thy hand alone can give us,
The beauty and the light,
That fills the children’s service
With June-time’s glory bright. [Refrain]
