Grant us Thy peace, LORD, through the coming night; Turn Thou for us its darkness into light; From harm and danger keep Thy children free, For dark and light are both alike to Thee. Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly life, Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife; Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, Call us, O LORD, to Thine eternal peace. Amen.

Love, that caused us first to be,
Love, that bled upon the tree,
Love, that draws us lovingly :

We beseech Thee, hear us.

[merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

O Great Absolver, grant my soul may wear
The lowliest garb of penitence and prayer,
That in the Father's House my glorious dress
May be the garment of Thy righteousness.

Yea, Thou wilt answer for me, Righteous LORD,
Thine all the merit, mine the great reward ;
Thine the sharp thorns, mine the golden crown,
Mine the life won, Thine the life laid down.

Lead us daily nearer Thee,
Till at last Thy face we see,
Crowned with Thine own purity :

We beseech Thee, hear us.


Sweet SAVIOUR, bless us ere we go ;

Thy word into our minds instil,
And make our lukewarm hearts to glow

With lowly love and fervent will.
Through life's long day and death's dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.

The day is done, its hours have run,

And Thou hast taken count of all,
The scanty triumphs grace hath won,

The broken vow, the frequent fall.
Through life's long day and death's dark night,
O gentle Jesus, be our Light.
