1. Saviour, again to Thy dear Name we raise
   With one accord our parting hymn of praise;
   We stand to bless Thee, ere our worship cease,
   Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word of peace.

2. Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way;
   With Thee began, with Thee shall end the day;
   Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
   That in Thy house have called upon Thy name.

 

3. Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the coming night;
   Turn Thou for us its darkness into light;
   From harm and danger keep Thy children free,
   For dark and light are both alike to Thee.

4. Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly life;
   Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife;
   Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease,
   Call us, O Lord, to Thine eternal peace.
