Words & Music: (1858-1931).

Here is a ben­e­dict­ion that can give all the time with­out be­ing im­pov­er­ished. Ev­ery heart may ut­ter it, ev­ery let­ter may con­clude with it, ev­ery day may be­gin with it, ev­ery night may be sanc­ti­fied by it. Here is bless­ing—keep­ing—shin­ing—the up­lift­ing up­on our poor life of all hea­ven’s glad morn­ing. It is the Lord Him­self who [gives us] this bar of mu­sic from hea­ven’s in­fi­nite an­them.

Dwight L. Moody, Notes from My Bible

The Lord bless you and keep you
The Lord lift His countenance upon you,
And give you peace, and give you peace;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious, and be gracious;
The Lord be gracious, gracious unto you.
