A Blessing from the Psalms

May God be gracious to us and bless us.
May his face shine on us–
so that his way may be known on earth,
his salvation among all nations.
God, our God, will + bless us,
and all the ends of the earth will fear him.

Source: From Psalm 67 (Evangelical Heritage Version)

This blessing was sung to the chant tune of the Magnificat in German Lutheran liturgy in the 1600s and 1700s. (Text is from the English Standard Version)
