1 Heavenly Father, we beseech Thee,
Grant Thy blessing ere we part;
Take us in Thy care and keeping,
Guard from evil ev'ry heart.

Bless the words we here have spoken,
Offered prayer, and cheerful strain;
If Thy will, O Lord, we pray Thee,
Grant we all may meet again.

2 Loving Saviour, go Thou with us,
Be our comfort and our stay;
Grateful praise to Thee we render
For the joy we feel today. [Refrain]

3 Holy Spirit, dwell within us,
May our souls Thy temple be;
May we tread the path to glory,
Led and guided still by Thee. [Refrain]

4 Heavenly Father, loving Saviour,
Holy Spirit, Three in One,
As among Thy saints and angels,
So on earth Thy will be done. [Refrain]
