"Almighty Father, Bless the Word"
by an unknown author
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. Almighty Father, bless the Word
Which through Thy grace we now have heard,
Oh, may the precious seed take root,
Spring up, and bear abundant fruit!
2. We praise Thee for the means of grace
As homeward now our steps we trace.
Grant, Lord, that we who worshiped here
May all at last in heaven appear.
