Thee,self-a - based in mor-tal guise, And wrapt in shades of death for me. Amen.

Oh, in what di-vers pains they met! Oh, with what joy they went a-way. A - men.

2 Once more 'tis eventide, and we

5 And none, O Lord, have perfect rest, Oppress'd with various ills draw near; For none are wholly free from sin; What if Thy form we cannot see?

And they who fain would love Thee best We know and feel that Thou art here. Are conscious most of wrong within. 3 O Saviour Christ, our woes dispel; 6 O Saviour Christ, Thou too art Man;

For some are sick, and some are sad, Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried, And some have never loved Thee well, Thy kind, but searching glance can scan

And some have lost the love they had. The very wounds that shame would 4 And some have found the world is vain,

Hear, in this solemn evening hour, Yet have not sought a friend in Thee. And in Thy mercy heal us all. Amen.

A-men.

5 Save that His will be done,

Whate'er betide,
Dead to herself, and dead

In Him to all beside.

6 Thus would I live; yet now

Not I, but He,
In all His power and love,

Henceforth alive in me.

7 One sacred Trinity,

One Lord divine,
May I be ever His,

And He for ever mine. Amen.

2 Holy Saviour, calm our fears

3 Holy Spirit, be Thou nigh When earth's brightness disappears; When in mortal pains we lie; Grant us in our later years

Grant us, as we come to die,
Light at evening-time.

Light at evening-time.
4 Holy, blessèd Trinity!

Darkness is not dark to Thee;
Th Thou keepest always see
Light at evening-time. Amen.

2 I love in solitude to shed

The penitential tear,
And all His promises to plead,

Where none but God can hear.

3 I love to think on mercies past,

And future good implore,
And all my cares and sorrows cast

On Him whom I adore.

23 ST. GABRIEL 8.8.8.4.

4 I love by faith to take a view

Of brightest scenes in heaven;
The prospect doth my strength renew.

While here by tempests driven.

5 Thus, when life's toilsome day is o'er,

May its departing ray
Be calm as this impressive hour,
And lead to endless day.

(d=84) The ra-diant morn hath passed away,

And spent too soon her gold - en store;

4_ 2.-4

Free from care,from la-bor free, Lord, I would com-mune with thee. A-men.

2 Thou, Whose all-pervading eye

Naught escapes without, within, Pardon each infirmity, Open fault, and secret sin. 3 Soon, for me, the light of day

Shall forever pass away;

Then, from sin and sorrow free,

Take me, Lord, to dwell with Thee. 4 Thou, Who, sinless, yet hast known

All of man's infirmity;
Then from Thine eternal throne,
Jesus, look with pitying eye. Amen.
