2 The day is gone, its hours have run;

And thou hast taken count of all, The scanty triumphs grace hath won,

The broken vow, the frequent fall. Through life's long day and death's dark

night,
O gentle Jesus, be our light.
3 Grant us, dear Lord, from evil ways

True absolution and release;
And bless us, more than in past days,

With purity and inward peace.
Through life's long day and death's dark

night,
O gentle Jesus, be our light.
4 For all we love, the poor,

the sad, The sinful, unto thee we call; O let thy mercy make us glad;

Thou art our Saviour and our all. Through life's long day and death's dark

night, O gentle Jesus, be our light. 5 O Saviour, bless us; night is come;

Through night and darkness near us be; Good angels watch about our home,

And we are one day nearer thee. Through life's long day and death's dark

night, O gentle Jesus, be our light. Amen.

Frederick William Faber, 1849

S.M.
UR day of praise is done;

The evening shadows fall;
But pass not from us with the sun,

True Light that lightenest all.

2 Around the throne on high,

Where night can never be,
The white-robed harpers of the sky

Bring ceaseless hymns to thee.

3 Too faint our anthems here;

Too soon of praise we tire:
But O, the strains, how full and clear,

Of that eternal choir!

4 Yet, Lord, to thy dear will

If thou attune the heart, We in thine angels' music still

May bear our lower part.

5 'Tis thine each soul to calm,

Each wayward thought reclaim, And make our life a daily psalm

Of glory to thy Name.

6 A little while, and then

Shall come the glorious end;
And songs of angels and of men
In perfect praise shall blend. Amen.

John Ellerton, 1871

SAYI
AVIOUR, again to thy dear Name we

raise With one accord our parting hymn of

praise; Guard thou the lips from sin, the hearts

from shame, That in this house have called upon thy

Name.

2 Grant us thy peace, Lord, through the

coming night; Turn thou for us its darkness into light; From harm and danger keep thy children

free, For dark and light are both alike to thee.

3 Grant us thy peace throughout our earthly

life; Peace to thy Church from error and from

strife; Peace to our land, the fruit of truth and

love; Peace in each heart, thy Spirit from above: 4 Thy peace in life, the balm of every pain;

Thy peace in death, the hope to rise again; Then, when thy voice shall bid our conCall us, O Lord, to thine eternal peace.

Amen. John Ellerton, 1866

Fill our hearts with joy and peace; Let us each, thy love possessing, Triumph in redeeming grace:

O refresh us,
Traveling through this wilderness.

2 Thanks we give and adoration

For thy Gospel's joyful sound:
May the fruits of thy salvation
In our hearts and lives abound:

May thy presence
With us evermore be found;

3 So that when thy love shall call us,

Saviour, from the world away,
Fear of death shall not appal us,
Glad thy summons to obey.

May we ever
Reign with thee in endless day. Amen.

L.M. O

JESUS, crucified for man,

O Lamb, all glorious on thy throne, Teach thou our wondering souls to scan

The mystery of thy love unknown.

2 We pray thee, grant us strength to take

Our daily cross, whate'er it be, And gladly for thine own dear sake

In paths of pain to follow thee.

3 As on our daily way we go,

Through light or shade, in calm or strife, O may we bear thy marks below

In conquered sin and chastened life.

4 And week by week this day we ask

That holy memories of thy cross
May sanctify each common task,

And turn to gain each earthly loss.

5 Grant us, dear Lord, our cross to bear

Till at thy feet we lay it down, Win through thy blood our pardon there, And through the cross attain the crown.

Amen. W. Walsham How, 1871

TOSANNA to the living Lord!

Hosanna to the Incarnate Word!
To Christ, Creator, Saviour, King,
Let earth, let heaven, Hosanna sing!

Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

2 Hosanna, Lord! thine angels cry;

Hosanna, Lord! thy saints reply;
Above, beneath us, and around,
The dead and living swell the sound;

Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

3 O Saviour, with protecting care,

Return to this thy house of prayer:
Assembled in thy sacred Name,
Where we thy parting promise claim:

Hosanna, Lord! Hosanna in the highest!
