Lord, let my evening prayer

Lord, let my evening prayer

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

Lord, let my evening prayer
As incense sweet ascend;
And while I lift my hands to Thee,
From heaven in mercy bend.

For in Thy name I hope,
And brightness floods my way;
The night departs, and clouds that roll,
And threaten with dismay.

And in Thy name I trust,
To find Thy promise sure;
Thy cov'nant like the mountains strong,
That evermore endure.

33
Now, at this evening hour,
My hope and trust renew;
Refresh me as the earth that drinks
The cool refreshing dew.

And when the morning wakes,
Awake my soul, I pray,
That in Thy strength goes forth to bear
The burdens of the day.
