1 Mellow chimes are stealing
On the twilight air,
Faint and fainter pealing,
Call the heart to prayer;
Come away! thy day is done,
Leave thy toil till morning sun;
Leave to God thy cares and sorrows,
In His hand He holds thy morrows,
Holds them, every one,
Holds them, every one.

2 In His sacred keeping
All His children dwell;
Waking or in sleeping,
He shall guard them well;
In His mercy trusting still,
He shall all thy hopes fulfill;
Heart, be glad! for He hath spoken,
Never can His word be broken,
Rest and fear no ill,
Rest and fear no ill.
