Representative Text

1 Day is ended, O how calmly,
In the bright and glowing west;
One by one its beams are dying,
One by one they sink to rest.

Father, hear us while we linger
At Thy throne of grace in prayer;
Through the night-watch keep us safely,
May we all Thy blessing share.

2 Day is ended, toil is over,
Busy sounds are hushed and still;
Grateful thoughts of our Creator
Now the tranquil spirit fill. [Refrain]

3 Day is ended, toil is over,
Our Redeemer, Friend, and Guide,
Bless the home we love so dearly,
Still for all its wants provide. [Refrain]

4 Day is ended, toil is over,
Time for us will soon be done;
Then within the gates eternal
May we gather every one. [Refrain]
