Representative Text

1 We humbly thank thee gracious Lord,
Thy blessed name we praise;
We praise thee for thy holy word
And every means of grace.

2 O, may the word which we have heard!
Fill us with holy zeal,
And may our slothful minds be stir'd
To seek and do thy will.

3 With faith and love fill every mind,
With reverence and fear,
Cause us to seek until we find
Thy spirit with us here.

4 Extend to us, thy gracious hands,
Bless us with heavenly grace--
So shall we live to thy commands,
And walk in all thy ways.

5 Grant us thy blessing from above;
Dear Lord, before we part,
So shall we know that thou art love,
And feel thy grace at heart.
