    Verse 1
    Ere another Sabbath close,
    Ere again we seek repose,
    LORD, our song ascends to thee,
    At thy feet we bow the knee.

    Verse 2
    For the mercies of the day,
    For this rest upon our way,
    Thanks to thee alone be given,
    LORD and King of earth and heaven.

    Verse 3
    Cold our services have been;
    Prayers and praises stained with sin;
    But thou canst and wilt forgive;
    By thy grace alone we live.

    Verse 4
    Whilst this throny path we tread,
    May thy love our footsteps lead:
    When our journey here is past,
    May we rest within Thee at last.

    Verse 5
    May our earthly Sabbaths prove
    Foretastes of our joys above;
    While our pilgrim steps we bend
    To the rest, which knows no end.
