#81: Savior, Again to Thy dear Name

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Savior, again to Thy dear name we raise

With one accord our parting hymn of praise;

Once more we bless Thee ere our worship cease,

Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word of peace.

2

Grant us Thy peace upon our home-ward way:

With Thee began, with Thee shall end the day;

Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame,

That in this house have called upon Thy name.

3

Grant us Thy peace, Lord, thru the coming night,

Turn Thou for us its darkness into light;

From harm and danger keep Thy children free,

For dark and light are both alike to Thee.

4

Grant us Thy peace thru-out our earthly life

Our balm in sorrow and our stay in strife;

Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease,

Call us, O Lord, to Thine eternal peace.
