Arthur H. Mann (1850–1929)



God of our sal­va­tion, hear us;
Bless, O bless us, ere we go;
When we join the world, be near us,
Lest we cold and care­less grow.
Savior! keep us,
Keep us safe from ev­ery foe.

As our steps are draw­ing near­er
To our ev­er­last­ing home
May our view of Heav’n grow clear­er,
Hope more bright of joys to come;
And, when dy­ing,
May Thy pre­sence cheer the gloom.
