Original text and translations
O Saviour, Friend, Humbly we pray to Thee,
On this Thy day to Thee We lowly bend.
On Thee our hopes rely, List to our fervent cry,
Thy blessing send.
From sin and sorrow, O give release,
And pardon our waywardness,
Strengthen our feebleness,
Grant us Thy peace.
O Loving Guide,
Guardian and Comforter,
We would for ever With Thee abide;
Grant that Thy children may Thro' life's long weary way,
Be by Thy side,
And when this earthly life From us shall flee,
We pass thro' the portals bright Into Eternal Light,
At rest with Thee, At rest with Thee.
