THROUGH the changes of the day,
Kept by Thy sustaining power, Offerings of thanks we pay,
Father! in this evening hour; Praises to Thy Name belong,
Source and Giver of our good ! And, though feeble is our song,
It shall speak our gratitude.
From the dangers which have frown'd,
From the snares in secret set, We have, through Thy mercy, found
Safety and deliverance yet! And Thy loving-kindness hath
All the day to us been shown, While profusely on our path
Richest blessings have been strown.
Spirit! who hast been our Light,
And the Guardian of our way,
Keep us for another day!
Watch, and sweet shall be our rest; And when morning gilds the sky,
Our awaking shall be bless'd!
