Jesus, Kneel beside Me

Representative Text

1 Jesus, kneel beside me
In the dawn of day;
Thine is prayer eternal
Teach me how to pray!

2 Master, work beside me
In the shining sun;
Gently guide Thy servant
Till the work be done.

3 Savior, watch beside me
In the closing light;
Lo, the evening cometh—
Watch with me this night!

4 Birds are winging homeward,
Sun and shadow cease;
Savior, take my spirit
To Thy perfect peace.
