Command Thy blessing from above,

O God, on all assembled here;

Behold us with a Father’s love,

While we look up with filial fear.


Command Thy blessing, Jesus, Lord,

May we Thy true disciples be,

Speak to each heart Thy mighty word:

Say to the weakest, Follow Me.


Command Thy blessing in this hour,

Spirit of truth, and fill this place

With wounding and with healing power,

With quickening and confirming grace.
