Shed upon us heavenly grace,
Rain and dew and gleams of glory
from the brightness of thy face;
that, with hearts in heaven dwelling,
we on earth may fruitful be,
and by angel hands be gathered,
and be ever, Lord, with thee.
Christopher Wordsworth, 1872, words to Hymn 92 in the 1940 Episcopal Hymnal. Photo copyright 2007 by Danny N. Schweers.
