1. Savior, to Thee we raise our hymn of gladness;
Once more at evening’s hour we look to Heav’n above;
Far, far behind to leave earth’s toil and sadness—
So resting only on Thy great redeeming love.

2. May this day’s sins, we pray Thee, all be pardoned;
Grant us Thy absolution, give Thy grace to cheer;
O never let our hearts by sin be hardened,
But keep our conscience tender, give us holy fear.

3. Now day is done, and all its labors ended,
Close Thou, O Lord, our weary eyes in gentle sleep;
So may we ever be by Thee defended—
O may Thy guardian angels round us vigil keep!

4. Our souls restore, renew our pow’rs, and make us
Strong in Thy strength to rise and greet the morning light;
And at the last, O blessèd Savior, take us
To dwell with Thee in that glad land which knows no night!
