606. The Lord Be With Us, as We Bend

1 The Lord be with us as we bend
His blessing to receive;
His gift of peace upon us send,
Before His courts we leave.
The Lord be with us as we walk
Along our homeward road;
In silent thought or friendly talk
Our hearts be near to God.

2 The Lord be with us till the night
Enfold our day of rest,
Be He of ev’ery heart the light,
Of ev’ry home the Guest.
And when our nightly pray’rs we say,
His watch He still shall keep;
Crown with His grace His own blest day,
And guard His people’s sleep.
