Hymn/Song Information

I love to steal awhile away From every cumbering




I love to steal awhile away
From every cumbering care,
And spend the hours of closing day
In humble, grateful, prayer.


I love in solitude to shed
The penitential tear,
And all His promises to plead
Where none but God can hear.


I love to think on mercies past,
And future good implore,
And all my cares and sorrows cast
On God, Whom I adore.


I love by faith to take a view
Of brighter scenes in heaven;
The prospect doth my strength renew,
While here by tempests driven.


Thus, when life’s toilsome day is o’er,
May its departing ray,
Be calm at this impressive hour,
And lead to endless day.


---Alternative verses---


I love to steal awhile away
From every cumbering care,
And spend the hours of setting day
In humble, grateful, prayer.
