1. Thou has been our guide this day,
Thou hast led us all the way,
Thou hast been our sun and shield,
Grateful hearts to Thee we yield
While Thou art nigh.

Refrain
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!
Heav’n and earth are full of Thee!
Heav’n and earth are praising Thee,

2. For the gift of strength and health,

For religion’s guiding light,

3. Guard us through the hours of night,
And with morn’s returning light,
Grant to each of us, we pray,
Strength to serve Thee all the day,
For Thine we are. [Refrain]
