14. Saviour, again to Your dear name we raise

1 Savior, 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 stillness, hear Your word of peace.

2 Grant us Your peace, Lord, on our homeward way;
with You began, with You shall end the day;
guard all 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 into perfect light;
from harm and danger keep us all night through,
for dark and light are both alike to You.

4 Grant us Your peace throughout our earthly life;
comfort in sorrow, courage in the strife;
then, when Your voice shall bid our conflict cease,
call us, O Lord, to Your eternal peace.
