Original text and translations
1 The Lord be with us as we bend
His blessing to receive;
His gift of peace on us descend
Before His courts we leave.
2 The Lord be with us as we walk
Along our homeward road;
In silent thought or friendly talk
Our hearts be near to God.
3 The Lord be with us till the night
Shall close the day of rest;
Be He of every heart the Light,
Of every home the Guest.
4 The Lord be with us through the hours
Of slumber, calm and deep;
Protect our homes, renew our powers,
And guard His people's sleep.
