EVENING SONG




Great God! to thee my evening song
With humble gratitude I raise:
O let thy mercy tune my tongue.
And fill my heart with lively praise.


Mercy, that rich. unbounded store,
Does my unnumbered wants relieve;
Among thy daily craving poor
On thy all-bounteous hand I live.


My days unclouded as they pass.
And every onward rolling hour.
Are monuments of wondrous grace,
And witness to thy love and power.


Thy love and power, celestial Guard,
Preserve me from surrounding harm:
Can danger reach me while the Lord.
Extends his kind, protecting arm?


And yet this thoughtless, wretched heart.
Too oft regardless of thy love,
Ungrateful, can from thee depart,
And from the path of duty rove.


Seal my forgiveness in the blood
Of Christ, my Lord; his name alone
I plead for pardon, gracious God,
And kind acceptance at thy throne.


With hope in him mine eyelids close,
With sleep refresh my feeble frame;
Safe in thy care may I repose,
And wake with praises to thy Name.


---Alternative verses---


Let this blest hope my eyelids close,
With sleep refresh my feeble frame;
Safe in thy care may I repose,
And wake with praises to thy Name.


Seal my forgiveness in the blood
Of Jesus; his dear name alone
I plead for pardon, gracious God,
And kind acceptance at thy throne.
