Representative Text

1 The day is spent, and evening shadows fall,
Our wearied souls for sweet refreshment call;
Far from the world, Lord, in Thy house we meet,
And lay our burdens at Thy blessed feet.

Lord, meet with us, with us abide,
While softly falls the eventide;
Make Thou our hearts within us glow,
Till all Thy holy will we know!

2 We drop the cares and sorrows of the day,
And come with Thee apart, to rest and pray;
Lord, in our midst be Thou, we humbly plead,
And grant the blessing that our spirits need. [Refrain]

3 How blest the hour that heart to heart we spend,
In tender converse with our heav’nly Friend;
When gathered here together in His name,
The promise of His holy word we claim. [Refrain]
