2 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.

3 Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways
True absolution and release;
And bless us, more than in past days,
With purity and inward peace.
Through life's long day and death's

dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our Light.

4 Do more than pardon; give us joy,
Sweet fear, and sober liberty,
And loving hearts without alloy,

That only long to be like Thee. Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our Light.

5 For all we love, the poor, the sad,
The sinful, unto Thee we call;
O let Thy mercy make us glad;

Thou art our Jesus, and our All. Through life's long day and death's dark night,

O gentle Jesus, be our Light.

2 The hope of heaven's eternal days
Absorbs not all the heart

That gives Thee glory, love, and praise,
For being what Thou art.

A task beyond our powers,
We say, "A perfect God is He,
And He is fully ours."

3 For Thou art God, the One, the Same, 5 O Thou, above all blessing blest,
O'er thanks exalted far,

O'er all things high and bright;
And round us, when we speak Thy Name, Thy very greatness is a rest
There spreads a heaven of light.

On excellence Divine;

To know that naught in man can tell
How fair Thy beauties shine!

See! the shades of eve- ning gather,

2 Deeper, deeper grow the shadows,
Paler now the glowing west,
Swift the night of death advances;
Shall it be the night of rest?

Sinks my heart with troubled fear; Give me faith for clearer vision,

Speak Thou, Lord, in words of cheer.

4 Let me hear Thy voice behind me,
Calming all these wild alarms;

Feel the everlasting arms.

Lay my head upon Thy breast
Till the morning; then awake me
Morning of eternal rest.

Mrs. Caroline L. Smith, 1853: recast in "Plymouth Coll.," 1855, and "Songs of the Church," 1862

5 Feeble, trembling, fainting, dying,
Lord, I cast myself on Thee;
Tarry with me through the darkness;
While I sleep, still watch by me.
