391. 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,
through 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 thy 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.
