The Lord be with us as each day

Representative Text

1 The Lord be with us as each day
His blessings we receive;
His gift of peace on all we pray,
Before His courts we leave.

2 The Lord be with us as we walk
Along our homeward road;
In silent thought or friendly talk,
Our hearts be near to God.

3 The Lord be with us till the night
Enfold our day of rest;
Be He of every heart the Light,
Of every home the Guest.

Amen.
