345. Savior, again to thy dear Name we raise

1 Savior, again to thy dear name we raise
with one accord our parting hymn of praise;
guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
that in this house have called upon thy Name.

2 Grant us thy peace upon our homeward way;
with thee began, with thee shall end the day;
from harm and danger keep thy children free,
for dark and light are both alike to thee.

3 Grant us thy peace, throughout our earthly life;
peace to thy Church from error and from strife;
peace to our land, the fruit of truth and love;
peace in each heart, thy Spirit from above:

4 thy peace in life, the balm of every pain,
thy peace in death, the hope to rise again.
then, when thy voice shall bid our conflict cease,
call us, O Lord, to thine eternal peace.
