Part in Peace

Part in peace: is day before us,
Praise his name for life and light;
Are the shadows lengthening o'er us,
Bless his care who guards the night.

Part in peace: with deep thanksgiving
Rendering, as we homeward tread,
Gracious service to the living,
Tranquil memory to the dead.

Part in peace: such are the praises
God our Maker loveth best;
This the worship that upraises
Human hearts to heavenly rest.

Part in peace: for duties call us,
There in service still to praise;
Fearing not what may befall us,
Leave to God the coming days.
