SAFELY through another week,
God has brought us on our way;
Let us all a blessing seek,
Waiting in his courts to-day;
Day of all the week the best,
Emblem of eternal rest.

While we seek supplies of grace,
Through the blest 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,

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 rest.

May the gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints;
Make the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief to all complaints:
Thus let all our worship prove,
Till we join the courts above.

Glory be to God on high-
God, whose glory fills the sky:
Glory to the Lamb be given-
Glory in the highest heaven;
Wisdom, riches, praise and power,
Be to God for evermore.
