Lyrics

Almighty Father, bless the Word,
Which through Thy grace we now have heard.
O may the precious seed take root,
Spring up, and bear abundant fruit.

We praise Thee for the means of grace,
As in our lives Thy love we trace.
Grant, Lord, that we who worship here
May all, at last, in Heaven appear.
