1 Great God, to Thee my evening song,
With humble gratitude I raise:
O let Thy mercy tune my tongue,
And fill my heart with lively praise.
2 My days unclouded as they pass,
And every gently rolling hour,
Are monuments of wondrous grace,
And witness to Thy love and power.
3 And yet this thoughtless, wretched heart,
Too oft regardless of Thy love,
Ungrateful, can from Thee depart,
And from the path of duty rove.
4 Seal my forgiveness in the blood
Of Jesus; his dear Name alone
I plead for pardon, gracious God,
And kind acceptance at Thy throne.
5 Let this blest hope mine eyelids close;
With sleep refresh my feeble frame;
Safe in Thy care may I repose,
And wake with praises to Thy Name.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
