Representative Text

1 Gentle Savior, be thou near us,
As we from each other part;
May thy word, its truth impressing,
Shed its light on every heart.

2 As the closing hour draws near us,
And the night steals gently on,
Let thy gracious presence cheer us,
Guard us till the coming morn.

3 When the night of death comes o'er us,
And our earthly prayers are o'er,
O receive us home to glory,
There to praise thee evermore.
