Hymn 408Play music
1 Father, again to Thy dear name we raise,
With one accord, our parting hymn of praise;
We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease,
And,humbly pleading, wait Thy word of peace.
2 Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way:
With Thee began with Thee shall end the day:
Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
That in this house have calJed upon Thy name.
3 Grant us Thy peace through this approaching night;
Turn Thou for us its darkness into light;
From harm and danger keep Thy children free
For dark and light are both alike to Thee.
4 Grant us Thy peace throughout our mortal life
Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife;
Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease,
Call us, O Lord, to Thine eternal peace.
