Representative Text

1 Hear Thy children, gentle Jesus,
While we breathe our evening prayer;
Save us from all harm and danger,
Take us 'neath Thy sheltering care.

2 Save us from the wiles of Satan,
'Mid the lone and silent night
Sweetly may bright guardian angels
Keep us 'neath their watchful sight.

3 Gentle Jesus, look in pity
From Thy great white throne above:
All the night Thy care is watchful;
Never closed Thine eyes of love.

4 Shades of evening fast are falling,
Day is fading into gloom;
When the shades of death fall round us,
Lead Thy ransomed children home.

Amen.
