1 O God, Thy grace and blessing give
To us who on Thy name attend,
That we this mortal life may live
Regardful of our journey's end.
2 Teach us to know that Jesus died,
And rose again, our souls to save;
Teach us to take Him as our guide,
Our help from childhood to the grave.
3 Then shall not death with terror come,
But welcome as a bidden guest,
The herald of a better home,
The messenger of peace and rest.
4 And when the awful signs appear
Of judgment and the throne above,
Our hearts still fixed, we shall not fear,
God is our trust, and God is love.
