Author: Frances R. Havergal, 1836-79 Hymnal: Christian Worship #593 (1993) Meter: 22.214.171.124 Hymnal Title: Christian Worship Lyrics: 1 Now the light has gone away;
Father, listen while I pray,
Asking you to watch and keep
And to send me quiet sleep.
2 Jesus, Savior, wash away
All that I've done wrong today.
Make me ever more like you,
Good and gentle, kind and true.
3 Let my near and dear ones be
Safe with you eternally.
Oh, bring me and all I love
To your happy home above.
4 Now my evening praise I give;
You once died that I might live.
All your precious gifts are free --
Oh, how good you are to me!
5 Ah, my best and kindest Friend,
You will love me to the end.
Let me love you more and more,
Always better than before. Topics: Evening; Evening Tune Title: MÜDE BIN ICH
