Sing We Now at Parting


Sing We Now at Parting


1. Sing we now at parting

One more strain of praise.

To our Heav’nly Father

Sweetest songs we’ll raise.

For his loving kindness,

For his tender care,

Let our songs of gladness

Fill this Sabbath air.

2. Praise him for his mercy;

Praise him for his love.

For unnumbered blessings

Praise the Lord above.

Let our happy voices

Still the notes prolong.

One alone is worthy

Of our sweetest song.

3. Jesus, our Redeemer,

Now our praises hear.

While we bow before thee,

Lend a list’ning ear.

Save us, Lord, from error.

Watch us day by day.

Help us now to serve thee

In a pleasing way.
