THE Creeps on the night;

The twinkling stars come one by one
To shed their light;
m With Thee there is no darkness, Lord;
With us abide,

And 'neath Thy wings we rest secure
This eventide.

HE sun declines; o'er land and sea

[merged small][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors]

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.'

8:

mp 2 Forgive the wrong this day we've done, Or thought, or said;

Each moment with its good or ill
To Thee has fled;

O Father, in Thy mercy great
Will we confide;
Thy benediction now bestow
This eventide.

When I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.'
mp
HE day is gently sinking to a close;

THE

Fainter and yet more faint the sunlight glows:
O Brightness of Thy Father's glory, Thou
Eternal Light of light, be with us now;
Where Thou art present darkness cannot be;
Midnight is glorious noon, O Lord, with Thee.
mp 2 Our changeful lives are ebbing to an end;

mf

Onward to darkness and to death we tend:
O Conqueror of the grave, be Thou our Guide,
Be Thou our Light in death's dark eventide;
Then in our mortal hour will be no gloom,
No sting in death, no terror in the tomb.
mp 3 Thou who in darkness walking didst appear
Upon the waves, and Thy disciples cheer,

p

Come, Lord, in lonesome days, when storms assail,
And earthly hopes and human succours fail;
When all is dark, may we behold Thee nigh,
And hear Thy voice, Fear not, for it is I.'
mp 4 The weary world is mouldering to decay;

(

Its glories wane, its pageants fade away:
In that last sunset, when the stars shall fall,
May we arise, awakened by Thy call,
With Thee, O Lord, for ever to abide
In that blest day which has no eventide.
