    Verse 1
    Saviour, again to Thy dear Name we raise
    With one accord our parting hymn of praise;
    We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease,
    Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word of peace.

    Verse 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 called upon Thy Name.

    Verse 3
    Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the coming 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.

    Verse 4
    Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly 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.
