426. Saviour, again to your dear name we raise

1 Saviour, again to your dear name we raise
with one accord our parting hymn of praise;
we give you thanks before our worship cease,
then, in the silence hear your word of peace.

2 Grant us your peace upon our homeward way;
with you began, with you shall end the day;
guard now the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
that in this house have called upon your name.

3 Grant us your peace throughout the coming night;
turn all our darkness to your perfect light;
then, through our sleep, our hope and strength renew,
for dark and light are both alike to you.

4 Grant us your peace throughout our earthly life,
courage in sorrow, courage in our strife;
then, when your voice shall bid our conflict cease,
call us, at last, to your eternal peace.
