1. Part in peace, this day be-fore us;
praise the Name, for life and light;
when the sha-dows leng-then o'er us,
bless the Love that guards the night.

2. Part in peace, with deep thanks-giv-ing,
ren-der, when we're home-ward bound,
gra-cious ser-vice in our liv-ing,
tran-quil beau-ty all a-round.

3. Part in peace, such are the prais-es
God our Ma-ker lov-eth best;
such the wor-ship that up-rais-es
hu-man hearts to heav-en-ly rest.
