6. 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 to-day:
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest!

2 Mercies multiplied each hour
Thro' the week our praise demand;
Guarded by almighty pow'r,
Fed and guided by His hand,
How ungrateful we have been,
Only made returns of sin.

3 While we pray for pardoning grace
Thro' the dear Redeemer’s name,
Show Thy reconciled face,
Take away our sin and shame:
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day in Thee.

4 AS we come Thy name to praise
May we 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.

5 May Thy Gospel’s joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
Make the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints:
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove
Till we join the Church above.
