4559. Now May He Who from the Dead

1. Now may He who from the dead
Brought the Shepherd of the sheep
Jesus Christ, our King and Head,
All our souls in safety keep.

2. May He teach us to fulfill
What is pleasing in His sight;
Perfect us in all His will,
And preserve us day and night.

3. To that dear Redeemer’s praise,
Who the covenant sealed with blood,
Let our hearts and voices raise
Loud thanksgivings to our God.
