Hartman Schenck, 1680; German text
Now, the hour of worship o'er,|
Teaching, hearing, praying, singing,
Let us gladly God adore,
For His Word our praises bringing;
For the rich repast He gave us
Bless the Lord, who deigned to save us.
2. Now the Blessing cheers our heart,|
By His grace to us extended.
Let us joyfully depart;
Be our souls to God commended.
May His Spirit ever guide us
And with all good gifts provide us!
3. Bless our going out, we pray,|
Bless our entrance in like measure;
Bless our bread, O Lord, each day,
Bless our toil, our rest, our pleasure;
Bless us when we reach death's portal,
Bless us then with life immortal.
