2 May struggling hearts that seek release Give deeper calm than night can bring; Here find the rest of God's own peace;

Give sweeter songs than lips can sing. And, strengthened here by hymn and prayer, 4 Life's tumult we must meet again: Lay down the burden and the care.

We cannot at the shrine remain; 3 O God, our Light, to Thee we bow;

But in the spirit's secret cell (Amen. Within all shadows standest Thou;

May hymn and prayer for ever dwell.

2 Let evil thoughts and spirits flee before us;

Till morning cometh, watch, O Master, o'er us;
In soul and body Thou from harm defend us,

Thine angels send us.
3 Let holy thoughts be ours when sleep o'ertakes us;

Our earliest thoughts be Thine when morning wakes us.
All sick and mourners we to Thee commend them,

Do Thou befriend them.
4 We have no refuge, none on earth to aid us

But Thee, () Father, who Thine own hast made us.
Keep us in life; forgive our sins; deliver

Us now and ever.
5 Praise be to Thee through Jesus our salvation,

God, Three in One, the Ruler of creation,
High throned, o'er all Thine eye of mercy casting,

Lord everlasting. Amen.

Of the universe, Thy home,
Gather us who seek Thy face
To the fold of Thy embrace,

For Thou art nigh.

3 While the deepening shadows fall,
Heart of Love, enfolding all,
Through the glory and the grace
Of the stars that veil Thy face

Our hearts ascend.

Holy, holy, holy, etc.

4 When, for ever from our sight

Pass the stars, the day, the night,
Lord of angels, on our eyes
Let eternal morning rise,

And shadows end.

Holy, holy, holy, etc. Amen.

fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, oh, a-| bide with me. A-men.


2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's | little day;

Earth's joys grow dim, its glories | pass away,
Change and decay in all a- | round I see;

O Thou who changest not, a- | bide with me.
3 I need Thy presence every | passing hour;

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?

Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, a- | bide with me.
4 I fear no foe, with Thee at | hand to bless;

Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? where, grave, thy | victory?

I triumph still, if Thou a- | bide with me.
5 Hold Thou Thy Cross before my | closing eyes:

Shine through the gloom, and point me , to the skies:
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain | shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, a- / bide with me. Amen.
