THE EVENING SACRIFICE.
Calm is the hallowed hour!
And calm the sacred joy our spirits know,
When we approach to that Eternal Power,
Before whose footstool thus we love to bow.

Lowly we bend the knee
Before that God whose arms the world uphold,
His worship sacred, and his service free,
His mercy boundless, and his love untold.

Then earth, how vain thy toys!
How short and momentary all thy bliss!
How frail, how transient, all thy boasted joys!
How sad thy happiest hours compared with this!

Saviour of sinners, hear!
Beam on our souls with thy divinest light;
Implant within our hearts thy holy fear,
And guide our loitering, wandering, footsteps right.
