Heavenly Father, bless me now;
At the cross of Christ I bow;
Take my guilt and grief away;
Hear and heal me now, I pray.

Now, O Lord, this very hour,
Send Thy grace and show Thy power;
While I rest upon Thy Word;
Come, and bless me now, O Lord.

Mercy now, O Lord, I plead
In this hour of utter need;
Turn me not away unblest;
Calm my anguish into rest.

O Thou loving, blessèd One,
Rising o’er me like the sun,
Light and life art Thou within;
Savior, Thou, from every sin!
