1. Stars of evening, softly gleaming
In the fading west,
With your heavenly light is streaming
Hope to hearts oppressed!
Toil is over, cease from sorrow,
Sleep and rest!
2. Hark! the evening bells are bringing
Hope of glad release,
Welcome strains their chimes are ringing:
Labor now shall cease;
Thou the day be long and dreary,
To the weary
3. Heavenly Father! watch beside us
Till the dawn of light,
And whatever may betide us,
Guard us by thy might!
Trusting in thy gracious keeping,
Through the night.
4. So when death’s dark clouds fall slowly
Over land and sea,
May thy light, serene and holy,
On our pathway be;
Leading us to joy transcending
Rest with thee!
