Jeremiah F. Ohl (1850-1941)

Thomas O. Summers (1812-1882). My second child was born in 1847, and for her I wrote The daylight fades, as far as I can recollect, about 1849. Appeared in Hymns for Schools and Families (Richmond, Virginia/Louisville, Kentucky: J. Early, 1853).

Evening Jeremiah F. Ohl, 1884 (🔊 pdf nwc).

The daylight fades, the evening shades
Are gathering round my head;
Father above, I praise that love
Which nightly guards my bed.

While Thou art near, I need not fear,
The gloom of midnight hour;
Blest Jesus, still from every ill
Defend me with Thy power!

Pardon my sin, and enter in
To sanctify my heart;
Spirit divine, O make me Thine,
And ne’er from me depart!
