86. Safely Through Another Week

1 Safely through another week
God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek,
Waiting in his courts today:
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest;
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest.

2 While we pray for pard'ning grace
Thru the dear Redeemer's name,
Show thy reconciling face,
Take away our sin and shame;
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day in Thee.
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day in Thee.

3 Here we come Thy name to praise -
Let us feel Thy presence near;
May thy glory meet our eyes
While we in thy house appear:
Here afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast;
Here afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast.

4 May Ghy gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
May the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints:
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we join the church above;
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we join the church above.
