1 May the grace of Christ our Saviour,
And the Father's boundless love,
With the Holy Spirit's favour,
Rest upon us from above!
2 Thus may we abide in union
With each other and the Lord,
And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth can not afford.

May the grace of Christ our [the] Saviour; And the Father's, &c. J. Newton. [Close of Service.] This paraphrase of 2 Cor. xiii. 14, appeared in the Olney Hymns, 1779, Bk. iii., No. 101, in 1 stanza of 8 lines. As a short hymn for the close of Divine Service it has become very popular, and is in use in all English-speaking countries, and sometimes as "May the grace of Christ the Saviour." It has also been translated into several languages. The Latin translation "Gratia nostri Salvatoris," is in Bingham's Hymnologia Christiana Latina, 1871.
