Representative Text

1. Thy blessing, O Lord,
With peace us afford;
Protect and keep us from danger.

2. Thy face ever bright
With heavenly light
Let shine now upon us, Thy children.

3. Thy countenance lift,
And grant us Thy gift,
The peace that abideth forever.

4. That thus we may be
Forever with Thee;
O Jesus, say "Amen," yea, "Amen."
