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!
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
In repaying love with sin!
3 While we pray for pard'ning grace,
Thro' the dear Redeemer's Name,
Show Thy reconciled face,
Look not on our sin and shame.
From our worldly cares set free,
May we rest this day with 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;
May the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints.
This may all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we join the Church above.
