Again, as evening's shadow falls

Again, as evening's shadow falls,
we gather in these hallowed walls;
and vesper hymn and vesper prayer
rise mingling as we meet thee here.

May struggling hearts that seek release
here find the rest of God's own peace,
and, strengthened here by hymn and prayer,
lay down their burdens and their care.

O God, our Light, to thee we bow;
withing all shadows standest thou;
give deeper calm than night can bring;
give sweeter songs than lips can sing.

Life's tumult we must meet again;
we cannot at this shrine remain;
but as we go upon our way,
dear Savior, be our Strength and Stay.
