Hymn/Song Information

Sweet Saviour bless us ere we go Thy




Sweet Savior, bless us ere we go;
Thy Word into our minds instill,
And make our lukewarm hearts to glow
With lowly love and fervent will.

Through life’s long day
and death’s dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.



The day is done, its hours have run,
And Thou hast taken count of all,
The scanty triumphs grace hath won,
The broken vow, the frequent fall.

Through life’s long day
and death’s dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.



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.



Do more than pardon; give us joy,
Sweet fear, and sober liberty,
And simple hearts without alloy
That only long to be like Thee.

Through life’s long day
and death’s dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.



Labor is sweet, for Thou hast toiled,
And care is light, for Thou hast cared;
Let not our works with self be soiled,
Nor in unsimple ways ensnared.

Through life’s long day
and death’s dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.



For all we love, the poor, the sad,
The sinful, unto Thee we call;
O let Thy mercy make us glad:
Thou art our Jesus, and our All.

Through life’s long day
and death’s dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.
