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.
