13 Now the Day Is Over
(MERRIAL. 6,5,6,5)
Sabine Baring-Gould,1865 Joseph Barnby,1868
  1. Now the day is over,
    Night is drawing nigh;
    Shadows of the evening
    Steal across the sky.
  2. Jesus, give the weary
    Calm and sweet repose;
    With thy tend'rest blessing
    May our eyelids close.
  3. Grant to little children
    Visions bright of thee;
    Guard the sailors tossing
    On the deep blue sea.
  4. Comfort every suff'rer
    Watching late in pain;
    Those who plan some evil
    From their sins restrain.
  5. When the morning wakens
    Then may I arise
    Pure, and fresh, and sinless
    In thy holy eyes.

4 Lord, Dismiss Us with Thy Blessing
John Fawcett,1773 Sicilian Melody
  1. Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing,
    Fill our hearts with joy and peace;
    Let us each thy love possessing,
    Triumph in redeeming grace;
     O refresh us, O refresh us,
     Trav'ling thro' this wilderness.
     Ever faithful, Ever faithful
     To the truth may we be found.
  2. Thanks we give and adoration
    For thy Gospel's joyful sound;
    May the fruits of thy salvation
    In out hearts and lives abound;
     O refresh us, &c.
