Blessèd Redeemer, graciously hear us,
Breathing devotion like incense to Thee;
Tenderly shield us, lovingly cheer us,
Blessèd Redeemer, Thy children are we.
While in Thy kingdom angels adore Thee,
Joyfully singing ever before Thee;
Grant our petition—hear, we implore Thee,
Voices now singing praises to Thee.
Tenderly shield us, lovingly cheer us,
Blessèd Redeemer, Thy children are we.

Tranquilly fading, slowly declining,
Twilight is passing in beauty away;
Now on Thy bosom safely reclining,
Teach us, our Father, oh, teach us to pray.
Blessèd Redeemer, leave us, oh never,
Till we have anchored over the river,
Till we shall praise Thee, singing forever,
Jesus, our Savior, glory to Thee.
Now on Thy bosom safely reclining,
Teach us, our Father, oh, teach us to pray.
