1 In our hearts celestial voices
Softly say
Day is passing, night is coming;
Kneel and pray!

2 Father, we obey the summons;
Hear our cry:
Pity us, and help our weakness,
Thou Most High!

3 For the joys that most we cherish
Praised be Thou!
Good and gentle art Thou forever;
Hear us now.

4 Coming morrows we may never
Live to see;
All we ask Thee is to keep us
Safe with Thee.

5 May our dreams be of Thy kingdom
Full of grace,
Where at last we hope to meet Thee
Face to face.

6 We are only little children
Kneeling here,
And we want our loving Father
Always near.

7 Take us in Thy arms, and keep us
As Thine own;
Gather us like little sunbeams
Round Thy throne.

8 There, when all our prayers are ended,
Faults forgiven,
May we live with Thee for ever
Up in heaven.
