1  When the day of toil is done,
When the race of life is run,
Father, grant Thy wearied one
Rest for evermore.

2  When the strife of sin is stilled,
When the foe within is killed,
Be Thy gracious word fulfilled,
"Peace for evermore."


3  When the darkness melts away
At the breaking of the day,
Bid us hail the cheering ray,
Light for evermore.

4  When the heart by sorrow tried
Feels at length its throbs subside,
Bring us, where all tears are dried,
Joy for evermore.


5  When for vanished days we yearn,
Days that never can return,
Teach us in Thy love to learn
Love for evermore.

6  When the breath of life is flown,
When the grave must claim its own,
Lord of life, be ours Thy crown,
Life for evermore.
