The Lord who has re­mem­bered us
His bless­ing will be­stow;
All those who fear His ho­ly name,
His lov­ing care shall know.

For small and great who fear His name
The Lord has good in store;
Ye and your child­ren, blest of God,
Shall pros­per more and more.

The great Cre­at­or blesses you
With gifts of bound­less worth;
The hea­vens He claims, but gives to man
Dominion in the earth.

The si­lent dead praise not the Lord,
The grave no song can raise;
But we will bless Him ev­er­more,
Let all proc­laim His praise.
