Lord, Behold Us With Thy Blessing

Melody -

H. J. Buckoll, 1803-1871

1. Lord, behold us with thy blessing,
Once again assembled here;
Onward be our footsteps pressing.
In thy love and faith and fear:
Still protect us,
Still protect us
By thy presence ever near.
  2. For thy mercy we adore thee,
For this rest upon our way;
Lord, again we bow before thee,
Speed our labours day by day.
Mind and spirit,
Mind and spirit
With thy choicest gifts array.

3. Keep the spell of home affection
Still alive in every heart;
May its power, with mild direction,
Draw our love from self apart,
Till thy children,
Till thy children
Feel that thou their Father art.
