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 the mighty word;

Say to the weakest, Follow Me.


Command Thy blessing in this hour,

Spirit of truth, and fill this place

Wit humbling and with healing power,

With quickening and confirming grace.


O Thou, our Maker, Saviour, Guide,

One true Eternal God confessed

May nought in life or death divide

The saints in Thy communion blessed.
