EVENING
15
2  When the soft dews of kindly sleep My wearied eyelids gently steep,
Be my last thought, how sweet to rest For ever on my Saviour's breast.
3  Abide with me from morn till eve, For without Thee I cannot live; Abide with me when night is nigh, For without Thee I dare not die.
4  If some poor wandering child of Thine Have spurned to-day the voice Divine,
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin; Let him no more lie down in sin.
5   Watch by the sick; enrich the poor With blessings from Thy boundless store-Be ev'ry mourner's sleep to-night, Like infants' slumbers, pure and light.
6   Come near and bless us when we wake, Ere through the world our way we take, Till in the ocean of Thy love
We lose ourselves in heaven above.
Rev. John Keble, 1820

2  Holy Saviour, calm our fears When earth's brightness disappears: Grant us in our later years
Light at evening-time.
3   Holy Spirit, be Thou nigh When in mortal pains we lie;
Grant us, as we come to die, Light at evening-time.
4 Holy, blessed Trinity,
Darkness is not dark to Thee;
Those Thou keepest always see
Light at evening-time.
Rev, Richard Haybs Robinson, 1869
