Heavenly Father, we beseech Thee,
Grant Thy blessing ere we part;
Take us in Thy care and keeping,
Guard from evil every heart.

Refrain

Bless the words we here have spoken,
Offered prayer and cheerful strain;
If Thy will, O Lord, we pray Thee,
Grant we all may meet again.

Loving Savior, go Thou with us,
Be our Comfort and our Stay;
Grateful praise to Thee we render
For the joy we feel today.

Refrain

Holy Spirit, dwell within us,
May our souls Thy temple be;
May we tread the path to glory,
Led and guided still by Thee.

Refrain

Heavenly Father, loving Savior,
Holy Spirit, Three in One,
As among Thy saints and angels,
So on earth Thy will be done.
