1. Heavenly Father, bless us now;
    At the cross of Christ we bow;
    Take our guilt and grief away;
    Hear and heal us now, we pray.
  2. Now, O Lord, this very hour,
    Send Thy grace and show Thy power;
    While we rest upon Thy word,
    Come, and bless us now, O Lord!
  3. Mercy now, O Lord, we plead
    In this hour of utter need;
    Turn us not away unblest;
    Calm our anguish into rest.
  4. O Thou loving, blessed One,
    Rising oér us like the sun,
    Light and life art Thou within:
    Savior, Thou, from every sin!
