“The Night cometh."
The darkness deepens : Lord, with me abide.
Help of the helpless, oh abide with me!
Earth's joys grow dim, its glories fade away;
O Thou who changest not! abide with me.
What but thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
FADING, STILL FADING.”
Fading, still fading, the last beam is shin - ing; Father in heaven, the

day, and we trust thee by night. From the fall of the shade till the morning bilis chime,

“The Day is Thine, the Night also."
Father in heaven! the day is declining;
Father of mercy, oh hear thou our prayer!
Thou, the Protector and Saviour of all !
Evening Hymn. KENN. | 2 Thou spread'st the curtains of the night, 1 GLORY to thee, my God, this night, Great Guardian of my sleeping hours :
For all the blessings of the light: Thy sovereign word restores the light,
3 I yield my powers to thy command; 2 Forgive me, Lord, through thy dear Son, To thee I consecrate my days:
The ills which I this day have done; Perpetual blessings from thine hand
Manna. Thy watchful station near me keep;
1 Tuy bounteous hand with food can bless My heart with love celestial fill,
The bleak and barren wilderness; And guard me from the approach of ill.
And thou hast taught us, Lord, to pray 4 Lord, let my heart for ever share
For daily bread from day to day. The bliss of thy paternal care: 'Tis heaven on earth, 'tis heaven above,
2 And, oh, when through the wilds we roam To see thy face and sing thy love.
That part us from our heavenly home;
When, lost in danger, want, and woe, 84.
Our faithless tears begin to flow, -
By which alone the soul can live;
The bread of life from day to day.
"Abide with us, for uw evening." KEBLE. | 2 We would adore thee, God sublime, 1 'Tis gone, that bright and orbed blaze, Whose power and wisdom, love and grace,
Fast fading from our wistful gaze; Are greater than the round of time, Yon mantling cloud has hid from sight
And wider than the bounds of space The last faint pulse of quivering light.
3 For thou art present with us here, 2 Sun of my soul, thou Saviour dear, As in thy glittering, high domain, It is not night if thou be near:
And grateful hearts and humble fear Ob may no earth-born cloud arise
Can never seek thy face in vain. To hide thee from thy servant's eyes !
4 Help us to praise thee, Lord of light; 3 When the soft dews of kindly sleep
Help us thy boundless love declare; My wearied eyelids gently steep,
And, while we crowd thy courts to-night Be my last thought, how sweet to rest Aid us, and hearken to our prayer.
For ever on my Saviour's breast. 4 Abide with me from morn till eve,
1 0 Thou true Life of all that live, For without thee I dare not die.
Who dost, unmoved, all motion sway;
Who dost the morn and evening give, 87.
And through its changes guide the day, Evening Worship. BOWRING. 1 How shall we praise thee, Lord of light ? 2 Thy light upon our evening pour,
How all thy boundless love declare ? So may our souls no sunset see;
To an eternal morning be.
