4 Abide with me from morn till eve,
An Evening Hymn.
Slow o'er the west the shadows fly;
2 Another fleeting day is gone!
Swept from the records of the year;
Life's fading visions disappear. 3 Another fleeting day is gone!
But soon a fairer shall arise;
4 Another fleeting day is gone!
In solemn silence rest, my soul,
C. M. 107. MONTGOMERY.
Introduction to Evening Worship.
When his disciples met
Nor knew the Scripture yet, —
2 Lo! in their midst his form was seen,
The form in which he died ; Their Master's marred and wounded mien,
His hands, his feet, his side.
3 Then were they glad their Lord to know,
And hailed him, yet with fear;Jesus, again thy presence show;
Meet thy disciples here.
Our risen Lord to view,
Say, “ Peace be unto you!”
5 And while with thee, in social hours,
We commune through thy word,
Confess, “ It is the Lord.”
PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING.
Praise to the only true God. Psalm 86.
i Eternal God, almighty Cause
Of earth and seas and worlds unknown;
2 Thy glorious being singly stands,
Of all within itself possessed :
3 Worship to thee alone belongs;
Worship to thee alone we give;
4 Lord, spread thy name through heathen lands;
Their idol deities dethrone;
Blessed be thy Name.
1 BLESSED be for evermore
That dread Name which we adore !
Through all lands, in every tongue.
Higher than the heavens his throne!
3 Yet to view the heavens he bends :
Yea, to earth he condescends;
4. He the broken spirit cheers;
Turns to joy the mourner's tears;
i GREATEST of beings! Source of life,
Sovereign of air, and earth, and sea!
2 Waked by thy hand, the morning sun
Pours forth to thee its earlier rays,
3 The moon, to the deep shades of night,
Speaks the mild lustre of thy name;
Thee, the great Lord of light, proclaim. 4 And groves, and vales, and rocks, and hills,
And every flower, and every tree,
Have each a grateful song for thee.
And, blest with reason's clearer light,
And glows with rapture at the sight.
Whether from air, or earth, or sea,
'T is when tongues and hearts consent,
Hymning thee in tuneful songs!
When the stars of evening rise,
