To the tune of Aurelia




Our Father, we Thy people

Are gathered here today,

Wilt Thou Thy gracious Presence

Among us now display.

Our hearts are full of gladness

We lift them up to Thee

We ask Thy Benediction

Upon our Jubilee.


O lead us Heavenly Father

Into the paths of peace;

May kindness and forebearance

Among us all increase;

Spread forth Thy glorious Gospel

That all the world may see

The coming of Thy Kingdom

Thy Blessed Jubilee.
