Part In Peace Is Day Before Us

Part in peace! the day before us,
praises sing for life and light.
Are the shadows lengthening o’er us?
Bless God’s care who guards the night.

Part in peace! with deep thanksgiving,
rendering as we homeward tread,
Love and service to the living,
gentle memory to the dead.

Part in peace! our voices raising,
in God’s presence always be.
This the worship and the praising,
bringing peace to you and me.
