388. Savior, Again to Thy Dear Name We Raise

1 Savior, again in 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 this 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.
