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.
