2351. Holy Father, Cheer Our Way

1. Holy Father, cheer our way
With Thy love’s perpetual ray;
Grant us every closing day
Light at evening time.

2. Holy Savior, calm our fears
When earth’s brightness disappears;
Grant us in our later years
Light at evening time.

3. Holy Spirit, be Thou nigh
When in mortal pains we lie;
Grant us, as we come to die,
Light at evening time.

4. Holy, blessèd Trinity,
Darkness is not dark to Thee;
Those Thou keepest always see
Light at evening time.
