Por­tu­guese Hymn, at­trib­ut­ed to John F. Wade (1711–1786) (🔊 pdf nwc).

We thank Thee, our Father,
For all we have heard,
For every sweet promise
Contained in Thy Word;
And O, with Thy Spirit
To comfort and cheer,
How oft we have felt
It is good to be here,
How oft we have felt
It is good to be here.

Dismiss us, we pray,
O Lord with Thy blessing,
From thoughts that are sinful,
O keep us this day;
Now cover us all with
The shade of Thy wing,
While still in Thy presence
This chorus we sing,
While still in Thy presence
This chorus we sing.
