Author: Michael Perry Hymnal: Moravian Book of Worship #570 (1995) Meter: 126.96.36.199 Hymnal Title: Moravian Book of Worship First Line: Now evening comes to close the day Lyrics: 1 Now evening comes to close the day,
and soon the silent hours
shall banish all our fears away,
and sleep renew our pow'rs.
2 Into your hands, eternal Friend,
we give ourselves again,
and to your watchful care commend
all those in grief or pain.
3 In waking lift our thoughts above,
in sleeping guard us still,
that we may rise to know our love
and prove your perfect will.
4 To Father, Son, and Spirit - praise,
all mortal praise be giv'n,
till sleep at last shall end our days
and we shall wake in heav'n.
