A Doxology

Bless us, Lord, for by thy hand

Is bounty given to this land.

Fill our hearts with thy great love;

Grant us peace like that above;

Help us in our helplessness;

Ease our burdens, aid distress;

Keep our hearts from evil free.

Hallelujah! Praise to thee!

Hallelujah! Praise to thee!

Give us grace to do thy will,

That, with hearts united still,

Songs we’ll raise with ringing voice,

And in gratitude rejoice.

May we all ourselves deny;

Hold the cross of Christ on high.

Fill us with thy Spirit’s flame:

Hallelujah! Praise thy name!

Hallelujah! Praise thy name!
