Jesus, kneel beside me,
In the dawn of day;
Thine is prayer eternal—
Teach me how to pray!

Master, work beside me
In the shining sun;
Gently guide Thy servant
Till the work be done.

Savior, watch beside me
In the closing light;
Lo, the evening cometh—
Watch with me this night!

Birds are winging homeward,
Sun and shadow cease;
Savior, take my spirit
To Thy perfect peace.
