246b. 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 Saviour, calm our fears
When earth’s brightness disappears;
Grant us in our latter 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 with thee;
Those thou keepest always see
Light at evening time.
