3 Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways

True absolution and release,
And bless us, more than in past days,

With purity and inward peace,
Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our light.
4 For all we love, the poor, the sad,

The sinful, unto Thee we call;
O let Thy mercy make us glad;

Thou art our Savior, and our all.
Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our light.
5 Sweet Savior, bless us; night is come;

Through night and darkness near us be;
Good angels watch about our home,

And we are one day nearer Thee.
Through life's long day and death's dark night.
O gentle Jesus, be our light.

2 Bless the gospel message, spoken Strengthened by Thy grace divine: In Thine own appointed way;

Set Thy seal on every heart, Give each fainting soul a token

Jesus, bless us ere we part! Of Thy tender love today;

4 Pardon Thou each deed unholy; Set Thy seal on every heart,

Lord, forgive each sinful thought; Jesus, bless us ere we part!

Make us contrite, pure, and lowly, 3 Comfort those in pain or sorrow,

By Thy great example taught: Watch each sleeping child of Thine; Set Thy seal on every heart, Let us all arise tomorrow

Jesus, bless us ere we part.

2 O) tell of His might, Oʻsing of His grace!

Whose robe is the light, whose canopy, space.
His chariots of wrath the deep thunderclouds form,

And dark is His path on the wings of the storm.
3 The earth, with its store of wonders untold,

Almighty, Thy power hath founded of old,
Hath 'stablished it fast by a changeless decree,

And round it hath cast, like a mantle, the sea.
4 Thy bountiful care, what tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,

And sweetly distills in the dew and the rain.
5 Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

In Thee do we trust, nor find Thee to fail.
Thy mercies how tender! how firm to the end!

Our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend!
6 O measureless Might! ineffable Love!

While angels delight to hymn Thee above,
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
With true adoration shall sing to Thy praise.
