Your Presence Lord Lyrics
With your presence, Lord, our Head and Savior,
bless us all, we humbly pray;
our dear heavenly Father's love and favor
be our comfort every day.
May God's Spirit now in each proceeding
favor us with his most gracious leading;
thus shall we be truly blessed
both in labor and in rest.
