1 Safely through another week
God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek
Waiting in His courts today;
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest!
2 While we pray for pardoning grace,
Through the dear Redeemer's Name,
Show thy reconciled face,
Take away our sin and shame;
From our earthly cares set free,
May we rest this night with Thee.
3 Here we come Thy Name to praise;
Let us feel Thy presence near;
May Thy glory meet our eyes,
While we in Thy house appear:
Here afford us, Lord, a taste
Of our everlasting feast.
4 May Thy Gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
May the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints:
Thus may all our Sabbaths prove,
Till we join the Church above.
