Jesus, grant us all a blessing,
Shouting, singing, send it down;
Lord, above, may we go praying,
And rejoicing in Thy love.


JESUS, grant us all a blessing,, Stanza 1
Shout, Oh glory! Sing glory, hallelujah!
I'm going where pleasure never dies.

Jesus, pardon all our follies,
Since together we have been,
Make us humble, make us holy
Cleanse us all from ev'ry sin.


JESUS, grant us all a blessing,, Stanza 2
