4570. Now Cheer Our Hearts

1. Now cheer our hearts this eventide,
Lord Jesus Christ, and with us bide,
Thou that canst never set in night,
Our heavenly sun, our glorious light.

2. May we and all who bear Thy name
By gentle love Thy cross proclaim,
Thy gift of peace on earth secure,
And for Thy truth the world endure.
