225. Jesus, Kneel Beside Me

1 Jesus, kneel beside me
In the dawn of day;
Thine is prayer eternal—
Teach me how to pray!

2 Master, work beside me
In the shining sun;
Gently guide Thy servant
Till the work be done.

3 Saviour, watch beside me
In the closing light;
Lo, the evening cometh—
Watch with me this night!

4 Birds are winging homeward,
Sun and shadow cease;
Saviour, take my spirit
To Thy perfect peace.
