BLESS NOW THE WORD OF LIFE AND GRACE
(Tune: When I Survey #118 LM)
Savior, send forth Your mighty grace;
Grant to poor sinners in this place
Eternal life, and give them faith,
Raise Your redeemed ones from their death.
While we the gospel banner raise,
Increase Your church, increase Your praise,
Save those for whom You did travail,
According to Your sov'reign will.
Turn them, oh, turn them, Lord, to You;
Let them Your grace and glory view;
Oh, may they taste Your saving grace!
Pardon their sin and give them peace.
Bless now the Word of life and grace;
Reprove our hearts, correct our ways;
Turn us, oh, turn us, Lord to You;
Let us Your grace and glory view!
