Savior, again to thy dear Name we raise

1 Savior, again to thy dear name we raise with one accord our parting hymn of praise; guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame, that in this house have called upon thy Name.
2 Grant us thy peace upon our homeward way; with thee began, with thee shall end the day; from harm and danger keep thy children free, for dark and light are both alike to thee.
3 Grant us thy peace, throughout our earthly life; peace to thy Church from error and from strife; peace to our land, the fruit of truth and love; peace in each heart, thy Spirit from above:
4 thy peace in life, the balm of every pain, thy peace in death, the hope to rise again. then, when thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, call us, O Lord, to thine eternal peace.
