Representative Text

1 Blessed Jesus, hear Thy children
At the close of this glad day;
Ere we part from one another,
Ere we homeward take our way.
Let Thy Heav’nly Benediction
Fall upon us peacefully;
And to Thee we’ll give the glory,
Father, Son, and Spirit, three,
Father, son, and Spirit three.

2 Blessed Jesus, watch Thou o’er us
All throughout our earthly life:
Be Thou e’er our balm in sorrow,
Be Thou e’er our stay in strife.
And when life’s long day is ended,
And the journey is complete;
May we dwell in Heav’n forever,
Resting at the Saviour’s feet,
Resting at the Saviour’s feet.
