                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. On what has now been sown
        Thy blessing, Lord, bestow;
        The power is Thine alone
        To make it spring and grow.
        Do Thou in grace the harvest raise,
        And Thou alone shalt have the praise.

        2. To Thee our wants are known,
        From Thee are all our powers;
        Accept what is Thine own
        And pardon what is ours.
        Our praises, Lord, and prayers receive
        And to Thy Word a blessing give.

        3. Oh, grant that each of us
        Now met before Thee here
        May meet together thus
        When Thou and Thine appear
        And follow Thee to heaven, our home.
        E'en so, Amen, Lord Jesus, come!
