Jehovah, God the Father, Bless

Jehovah, God the Father, bless,
And Thy own work defend!
With mercy’s outstretched arms embrace
And keep us to the end!

Preserve the creatures of Thy love,
By providential care
Conducted to the realms above,
To sing Thy goodness there.

Jehovah, God the Son, reveal
The brightness of Thy face;
And all Thy pardoned people fill
With plenitude of grace!

Shine forth with all the Deity,
Which dwells in Thee alone;
And lift us up Thy face to see
On Thy eternal throne.

Jehovah, God the Spirit, shine,
Father and Son to show!
With bliss ineffable, divine,
Our ravished hearts o’erflow.

Sure earnest of that happiness
Which human hope transcends,
Be Thou our everlasting peace,
When grace in glory ends!

Words: Charles Wesley, 1767.
