Almighty Father, bless the WordPublished in 70 hymnals
1 Almighty Father, bless the word.
Which thro' Thy grace we now have heard;
O may the precious seed take root,
Spring up, and bear abundant fruit.
2 We praise Thee for the means of grace,
Thus in Thy courts to seek Thy face:
Grant, Lord, that we who worship here
May all, at last, in heaven appear.
