7s.

1
Ere another Sabbath’s close,
Ere again we seek repose,
Lord! our song ascends to Thee;
At Thy feet we bow the knee.

2
For the mercies of the day,
For this rest upon our way,
Thanks to Thee alone be given,
Lord of earth, and King of heaven!

3
Cold our services have been;
Mingled every prayer with sin;
But Thou canst and wilt forgive;
By Thy grace alone we live!

4
Whilst our daily path we tread,
May Thy love our footsteps lead!
When our journey here is past,
May we rest with Thee at last!

5
Let these earthly Sabbaths prove
Foretastes of our joys above;
While their steps Thy pilgrims bend
To the rest which knows no end!
