OW from the altar of my heart
Let incense-flames arise: Assist me, Lord, to offer up
Mine evening sacrifice.
2 This day God was my Sun and Shield,
My Keeper and my Guide;
His mercies multiplied.
3 Minutes and mercies multiplied
Have made up all this day:
More fleet and free than they.
4 New time, new favor, and new joys
Do a new song require:
Accept my heart's desire.
5 Lord of my time, whose hand hath set
New time upon my score,
John Mason, 1683
Night is drawing nigh, Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.
2 Jesus give the weary
Calm and sweet repose; With Thy tenderest blessing
May mine eyelids close.
3 Grant to little children
Visions bright of Thee; Guard the sailors, tossing
On the deep blue sea.
4 Comfort every sufferer
Watching late in pain; Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.
5 Through the long night-watches
May Thine angels spread Their white wings above me,
Watching round my bed.
6 When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Sabine Baring-Gould, 1865
