48. O Savior, bless us ere we go

Six 8's

St. Matthias:

William Henry Monk, 1861

Frederick William Faber, 1849

O Savior, bless us ere we go;

Thy word into our minds instill,

And make our lukewarm hearts to glow

With lowly love and fervent will.

Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our light.

The day is gone, its hours have run;

And thou hast taken count of all,

The scanty triumphs grace hath won,

The broken vow, the frequent fall.

Through life's long day and death's dark night

O gentle Jesus, be our light.

Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways

True absolution and release;

And bless us, more than in past days,

With purity and inward peace.

Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our light.

For all we love, the poor, the sad,

The sinful, unto thee we call;

O let thy mercy make us glad;

Thou art our Savior and our all.

Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our light.

O Savior, bless us; night is come;

Through night and darkness near us be;

Good angels watch about our home,

And we are one day nearer thee.

Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our light.

Amen.
