Scripture: Psalm 4:8 Proverbs 3:24
Theme: Evening Hymns

1.  Now the day is over,
    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.  Comfort those who suffer,
    Watching late in pain;
    Those who plan some evil
    From their sin restrain.

4.  When the morning wakens,
    Then may I arise
    Pure, and fresh, and sinless
    In Thy holy eyes.
