Evening Prayer. ATUNS OF THE SPIRIT. | 6 We bring to thee our hopes and fears, 1 As darker, darker, fall around
And at thy footstool lay; The shadows of the night,
And, Father, thou who lovest all
Wilt hear us as we pray.
8. D. ROBBIND ? Father in heaven, to thee are known Our many hopes and fears,
1 Thou art my morning, God of light; Our heavy weight of mortal toil,
Thy day-spring wakes my soul; Our bitterness of tears.
Thy radiant smile subdues the night,
And shall the day control. 3 We pray thee for our absent ones,
2 And thou my noon, O Father! art; Who have been with us here;
Thy central warmth I own: And in our secret heart we name
The glowing fulness of my heart The distant and the dear.
Pulses from thee alone.
1 For weary eyes, and aching hearts,
And feet that from thee rove,
We pray thee, God of love.
3 And thou my evening: let me rest,
When life declines, in thee;
Thou wilt my guardian be.
8 We pray thee for the little bark Just launched upon
life's sea : Are not the depths of parents' love,
() Father! known to thee?
4 A brighter morning round thy throne
Shall dawn with light more fair :
Thou wilt awake me there

3 But our brief life's a shadowy dream,
Seeing the Invisible.
But darkness veils seraphic eyes,
When God with all his glory's there.
And with its tremblings mingle joy,
In fixed regard, great God, to thee. 133.
Praise to the only true God. Ps. 86.
3 Oh ever conscious to my heart,
For it bath caught the heavenly fire.
To bear thee ever in its sight;
Its only portion and delight.
