AND now we must bid one another farewell ;
The peace of our God keep you ever! God's peace in our bosom and all will be well, Or whether we meet or we sever.
May Christ, our dear Lord,
Be our sure reward,
20 help us, dear Father, and Christ, Thou
the Son, That gladly our course we may finish! And Thou, Holy Spirit, Thou comforting
That we, by Thy might,
May fight the good fight,
G. T. Rygh, Tr. 14
ND the grace of God our Father,
And the love of Jesus Christ, And the Holy Spirit's union
Be with us forevermore.
MAY the grace of Christ our Savior,
, And the Father's boundless love, With the Holy Spirit's favor,
Rest upon us from above.
2 Thus may we abide in union
With each other and the Lord; And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.
16 AMEN! be His Word and Spirit;
Amen, Christ supplies our want; Amen is His pow'r and merit;
Amen is His cup and font; Amen is His death and life;
Amen, Christ with grace is rife! 2 Amen, hope that never faileth;
Amen, faith that maketh strong; Amen, love that e'er prevaileth;
Amen, in yon sainted throng; Amen in God's blessed rest;
Amen, there to dwell is best. 3 Amen, every saint is voicing;
Amen, is our heavenly song; Amen, there for aye rejoicing ;
Amen, in God's joyous throng; Amen! life comes from above;
Amen! God alone is love! 4 Amen! all unite in praying,
Amen! hear our prayer, O Lord! Amen! Jesus, Thou art saying ;
Amen! is Thy seal and word; Amen! say, O child, come home! Amen! in Thy name I come!

18 SAVIOR, again to Thy dear name we raise With one accord our parting hymn of
praise; Once more we bless Thee ere our worship
cease, Then, lowly bending, wait Thy word of peace.
2 Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way; With Thee began, with Thee shall end the
day; Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from
shame, That in this house have called upon Thy
3 Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the com
ing night; Turn Thou for us its darkness into light; From harm and danger keep Thy children
For dark and light are both alike to Thee.
4 Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly
life, Our balm in sorrow and our stay in strife; Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict
SAFELY through another week,
God has brought us on our way; Let us now a blessing seek,
Waiting in His courts today; Day of all the week the best, Emblem of eternal rest.
2 Mercies, multiplied each hour,
Through the week our praise demand; Guarded by almighty power,
Fed and guided by His hand, Though ungrateful we have been, Only made returns of sin.
3 While we pray for pardoning grace,
Through the dear Redeemer's name, Show Thy reconciléd face,
Take away our sin and shame: From our worldly cares set free, May we rest this day in Thee.
4 May Thy Gospel's joyful sound
Conquer sinners, comfort saints; Make the fruits of grace abound,
Bring relief for all complaints : Thus may all our Sabbaths prove, Till we join the Church above.
20 PRAISE to Thee and adoration,
Blessed Jesus, Son of God,
Didst partake of flesh and blood;
Follow where Thy steps are leading. 2 Let me never, Lord, forsake Thee,
E’en though bitter pain and strife
But may I through all my life
K. Kvamme, Ir.
21 HOW blessed is the little flock
Whom Jesus calls His own!
They trust in Him alone.
2 My Jesus, am I in that band,
And wilt Thou call me Thine? Do I among the chosen stand
Whose lamps so brightly shine?
