EVENING

2   Heavy though our sins, Thy mercy
Far outweighs them every one; Down before the cross we cast them, Trusting in Thy help alone.
3   Keep us through this night of peril
Safe beneath its sheltering shade; Take us to Thy rest, we pray Thee, When our pilgrimage is made.
4  None can measure out Thy patience By the span of human thought;
None can bound the tender mercies Which Thy holy Son has bought.
5   Pardon all our past transgressions, Give us strength for days to come;
Guide and guard us with Thy blessing, Till Thine angels bear us home.
Harriet Parr, 1856

2   Soon as dies the sunset glory,
Stars of heaven shine out above, Telling still the ancient story, Their Creator's changeless love.
3   Now, our wants and burdens leaving
To His care Who cares for all,
Cease we fearing, cease we grieving: At His touch our burdens fall.
4 As the darkness deepens o'er us, Lo! eternal stars arise; Hope and faith and love rise glorious, Shining in the spirit's skies.
Rev. Samuel Longfellow, 1859
