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.

3 Then shall not death with terror come,
But welcome as a bidden guest,

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.
