12144. Bending Before Thee

1 Bending before Thee, let our hymn go upwards,
Bright as the sunshine breaking from the darkness.
Thee we implore to guard us on our journey,
Lord God Almighty.

2 Guard us in toil when fainting in the noonday,
Guard us reposing under evening shadows.
Guard us when midnight walks abroad in heaven,
Lord God Almighty.

3 If the dread foe assail us with temptation,
Hear us, O Lord, and save us from his danger.
O keep us pure, O lead us to Thy presence.
Lord God Almighty.

4 Glory to Thee, O Father everlasting!
Glory to Thee, O Son and Holy Spirit!
One in three Persons, infinite, unchanging!
Lord God Almighty!
