78. Part in Peace

1 Part in peace! the day before us,
praises sing for life and light.
Are the shadows lengthening o’er us?
Bless God's care who guards the night.

2 Part in peace! with deep thanksgiving,
rendering as we homeward tread,
Love and service to the living,
gentle memory to the dead.

3 Part in peace! our voices raising,
in God's presence always be.
This the worship and the praising,
bringing peace to you and me.
