And spend the hours of setting day,
In liumble, grateful prayer.
The penitential tear;
When none but God is near.
And future good implore;
On him whom I adore.
Of brighter scenes in lieaven;
While here by tempests driven.
May its departing ray,
And lead to endless day.
HYMN 593, C. M. 593
Evening Worship in the Family.
And we, lonely ,
To bless thy fostering hand. mp
2 And wilt thou bend a listening ear
To praises low as ours ?
The song which meekness pours.
As we before thee pray ;
For thou didst bless the infant train,
All evil far remove;
Thine everlasting love.
A flock by Jesus led,
In glory on our head.
6 Oh! still restore our wandering feet,
And still direct our way ;
The dawn of endless day.

An Evening Hymn. m 1 THUS far the Lord has led me on,
And every evening shall make known
Some fresli memorial of his grace.

Their watchitul stations round my bed.
My flesh shall rest beneath tlıc ground,
With sweet salvation in the sound.

And wait the Sabbath dawn. mp 2 So let its calm prevail

To pay the Lord our vows.

For death stands ready at the door,
To hurry us away.
To God's avenging law;
In every breath we draw.
Our joy and safety brings;
Beneath his shady wings.
