Hide me in the shadow of Your wings.@Psalm 17:8

May Rowland (1870-1959).

Vesper Hymn (Rendle) Lily Rendle (1875-?) (🔊 pdf nwc).

The day is slowly wending
Toward its silent ending,
But mid the light declining
The evening star is shining:

Refrain

O Father, while we sleep,
Thy children keep!

Beneath Thy mighty caring
The birds and beasts are sharing,
The love that sends the showers,
The hand that gives the flowers:

Refrain

Though long our day of testing,
Now comes the hour of resting,
May weariness and sadness
Be lulled to peace and gladness:

Refrain

The Savior’s cross is winning
Forgiveness for the sinning,
And while we kneel confessing,
We humbly wait Thy blessing:

Refrain

All evil thoughts expelling,
Now make in us Thy dwelling,
O Spirit, pure and holy,
Possess these hearts so lowly:

Refrain
