1.  Lord, open Thou my heart to hear

And through Thy Word to me draw near;

Let me Thy Word e’er pure retain,

Let me Thy child and heir remain.

2.  Thy Word doth deeply move the heart,

Thy Word doth perfect health impart,

Thy Word my soul with joy doth bless,

Thy Word brings peace and happiness.

3.  To God the Father, God the Son,

And God the Spirit, Three in One,

Shall glory, praise, and honor be

Now and throughout eternity.

1.  The new Church Year again is come

And wakes the joy of Christendom;

Thy King, O Zion, comes to thee,

Rejoice, rejoice eternally!

Hallelujah!

2.  Now in our midst anew are heard

The lessons of God’s holy Word,

That lead the way to life and heav’n;

Lord, praise to Thee for this be giv’n!

Hallelujah!

3.  Thy truth repeated o’er and o’er,

Our faith will strengthen more and more;

Let it abide in us, that we

May render endless praise to Thee.

Hallelujah!
