281. Saviour, again to your dear name we raise

1 Saviour, again to your dear name we raise
with one accord our parting hymn of praise;
we give you thanks before our worship cease —
then, in the silence, hear your word of peace.

2 Give us your peace, Lord, on our homeward way;
with you began, with you shall end the day;
guard now the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,
that in this house have called upon your name.

3 Grant us your peace, Lord, through the coming night,
turn all our darkness to your perfect light;
then, through our sleep, our hope and strength renew,
for dark and light are both alike to you.

4 Give us your peace throughout our earthly life:
comfort in sorrow, courage in the strife;
then, when your voice shall make our conflict cease,
call us, O Lord, to your eternal peace.
