With full salvation blest.

Who fear thy name, and keep thy word; Thy wisdomn guides, thy power defends
Their life, till life its journey ends. 2 O that my soul, with awful sense
Of thy transcendent excellence,
Watchful against each darling sin. 3 Never, O never from my heart
May this great principle depart,

Prayer before the eternal throne. 2 Go in peace, thy sins forgiven!

Go in peace and liberty!

O’er our spirits while we pray;

i In paths unknown God leads us on
To his divine abode,
Through all the heavenly road.
2 The ways, all rugged and perplexed,
He renders smooth and straight, And strengthens every feeble knee
To march to Zion's gate.

Till I the mount ascend, Where toils and storms are known no more,
And anthems never end.

Close of Worship. Evening.
Gather fast the shades of night;
Fill our souls with heavenly light.
2 Softly now the dew is falling;
Peace o'er all the scene is spread ;On his children, meekly calling,
Purer influence God will shed.

Thus our parting hymn we sing, Father, give thine evening blessing;
Fold us safe beneath thy wing.

Be peaceful, pure, divine, like this;
