1.#And now this holy day
   Is drawing to its end,
   Once more, to Thee, O Lord,
   Our thanks and prayers we send.

2.#We thank Thee for this rest
   From earthly care and strife;
   We thank Thee for this help
   To higher, holier life.

3.#We thank Thee for Thy house;
   It is Thy palace-gate
   Where Thou, upon Thy throne
   Of mercy, still dost wait.

4.#We thank Thee for Thy Word,
   Thy Gospel’s joyful sound;
   Oh, may its holy fruits
   Within our hearts abound!

5.#Yet, ere we go to rest,
   Father, to Thee we pray,
   Forgive the sins that stain
   E’en this Thy holy day.

6.#Through Jesus let the past
   Be blotted from Thy sight,
   And let us all now sleep
  At peace with Thee this night.

7.#To God the Father, Son,
   And Spirit glory be,
   From all in earth and Heav’n,
   Through all eternity.
