293 - Heavenly Father, Bless Us Now

Heavenly Father, bless us now;
At the cross of Christ we bow;
While our guilt and grief away;
Hear and heal us now we pray.
Now, O Lord, this very hour,
Send Thy grace show Thy power;
While we rest upon Thy word,
Come, and bless us now, O Lord!
Mercy now, O Lord, we plead
In this hour of utter need;
Turn us not away unblest;
Calm our anguish into rest.
O Thou loving blessed One,
Rising o’er us like the sun,
Light and life art Thou within:
Savior, Thou, from every sin!
