Hymn/Song Information

Dread Sovereign let my evening song Like holy




[Dread Sovereign! let my evening song
Like holy incense rise;
Assist the offerings of my tongue
To reach the lofty skies.


Through all the dangers of the day
Thy hand was still my guard,
And still to drive my wants away
Thy mercy stood prepared.]


Perpetual blessings from above
Encompass me around,
But O how few returns of love
Hath my Creator found!


What have I done for him that died
To save my guilty soul?
How are my follies multiplied,
Fast as my minutes roll


Lord, with this sinful heart of mine
To thy dear cross I flee;
And to thy grace my soul resign,
To be renewed by thee.


Sprinkled afresh with pardoning blood,
I lay me down to rest,
As in the embraces of my God,
Or on my Saviour's breast.


---Alternative verses---


[Dread Sovereign! let our evening songs
Like holy incense rise;
Assist the offerings of our tongue
To reach the lofty skies.


Through all the dangers of the day,
Thy hand has been our guard;
Thy love has cheered us on our way,
Thy bounties we have shared.


Perpetual blessings from above
Encompass us around,
But O how few returns of love
Hath our Redeemer found!


What have I done for him that died
To save my wretched soul?
How are my follies multiplied,
Fast as my minutes roll


Lord, with these guilty heart of ours,
To thy dear cross we flee;
And may our souls, with all their powers,
be sanctified by thee.


Lord, with this guilty heart of mine
To thy dear cross I flee;
And to thy grace my soul resign,
To be renewed by thee.
