EVENING
12
2 The sorrows of Thy servants, Lord,
O, do not Thou despise, But let the incense of our prayers
Before Thy mercy rise. The brightness of the coming night
Upon the darkness rolls; With hopes of future glory, chase
The shadows from our souls.
3 Slowly the rays of daylight fade;
So fade within the heart The hopes in earthly love and joy
That one by one depart. Slowly the bright stars, one by one,
Within the heavens shine; Give us, O Lord, fresh hopes in Heaven,
And trust in things divine.
4 Let peace, O Lord, Thy peace, O God,
Upon our souls descend, From midnight fears, and perils, Thou
Our trembling hearts defend: Give us a respite from our toil,
Calm and subdue our woes; Through the long day we suffer, Lord,
O give us now repose I
Adelaide Anne Procter, i8.
