O Savior, bless us ere we go

1. O Saviour, 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.

2. The day is [gone/done], 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.

3. 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 deaths dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our light.

4. Do more than pardon: give us joy,
Sweet fear and sober liberty,
And loving hearts with alloy
That only long to be like Thee.

Through life's long day and deaths dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our light.

5. For all we love, the poor, the sad,
The sinful, unto thee we call;
O let thy mercy make us glad;
Thou art our Saviour and our all.

Through life's long day and death's dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our light.

6. O Saviour, 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.
