1 Holy Father, cheer our way
with thy love’s perpetual ray;
grant us ev'ery closing day
light at evening time.

2 Holy Saviour, calm our fears
when earth’s brightness disappears;
grant us in our latter years
light at evening time.

3 Holy Spirit, be thou nigh
when in mortal pains we lie;
grant us, as we come to die,
light at evening time.

4 Holy, blessèd Trinity,
darkness is not dark with thee;
those thou keepest always see
light at evening time.
