SATURDAY EVENING




Safely through another week
God has brought us on our way;
Let us now a blessing seek,
on th’approaching Sabbath day;
|:Day of all the week the best,
emblem of eternal rest. :|


Mercies multiplied each hour
through the week our praise demand;
Guarded by almighty power,
fed and guided by His hand;
|:Though ungrateful we have been,
only made returns of sin. :|


While we seek supplies of grace
Through the dear Redeemer's name,
Show thy reconciling face;
Take away our sin and shame;
|: From our worldly cares set free;
May we rest, this day, in thee. :|


While we pray for pardoning grace,
through the dear Redeemer’s Name,
Show Thy reconciled face,
take away our sin and shame;
|:From our worldly cares set free,
may we rest this night with Thee. :|


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. :|


When the morn shall bid us rise,
may we feel Thy presence near:
May Thy glory meet our eyes,
when we in Thy house appear:
|:There afford us, Lord, a taste
of our everlasting feast. :|


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! :|


May Thy Gospel’s joyful sound
conquer sinners, comfort saints;
May the fruits of grace abound,
bring relief for all complaints;
|:Thus let all our Sabbaths prove
till we rest in thee above! :|

Guarded by thy mighty power,
Nourished by thy bounteous hand;

May our souls rejoice in thee. :|

Foretastes of the joys above. :|
