2 Jesus, hear our humble prayer,
Tender Shepherd of Thy sheep,

3 What we each have now been taught,
Let our memories retain.

Here to meet in peace again.

4 Then, if Thou Thy instruction bless,
Songs of praises shall be given;
We'll our thankfulness express,
Here on earth, and then in heaven.

Amen.
