The Lord be with us as we bend
His blessing to receive;

Before His courts we leave.

Along our homeward road;
In silent thought or friendly talk
Our hearts be near to God.

Before His courts we leave.
The Lord be with us till the night
Enfold our day of rest;

Of every home the Guest.

Of slumber calm and deep,
Protect our homes, renew our powers,
And guard us while we sleep.
