God our Father! we would praise Thee,
For Thy loving smile today;
In Thy mercy wilt Thou keep us,
As we go from hence away.

Refrain

Hallowed be Thy name for ever,
May Thy glorious kingdom come;
As in Heav’n Thy saints adore Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.

God our Savior! we beseech Thee,
Take us now beneath Thy care;
Grant to each and all Thy blessing,
While we leave this house of prayer.

Refrain

God the Spirit! be our comfort;
Keep our minds in perfect peace;
Make our humble hearts Thy dwelling,
More and more our faith increase.

Refrain

God the Father, Son and Spirit;
One triune, exalted Lord!
Thou, the Alpha and Omega,
Thou the everlasting Word.
