1 O bless the hour when evening comes,
And calls us to our place of pray’r;
With joyful heart our feet we turn
To meet Thine own disciples there.

2 With one accord we gather here,
Our wants make known, our sins confess;
Dear Saviour, wilt Thou now appear
And bless, as only Thou canst bless.

3 Our faith increase, our fears remove,
Make strong the weak, the helpless raise;
May ev’ry heart now feel Thy love,
And ev’ry tongue speak forth Thy praise.

4 No want have we Thou canst not fill,
No need but Thou canst fully meet;
May we obey Thy gracious will,
And find our lives in Thee complete.
