36. Now As Evening Shadows Falling

1 Now as evening shadows falling,
Gracious God we turn to Thee;
Now in pity hear us calling,
Save from sin and set us free.
Thou art gracious, Thou art gracious;
Keep us safe till morn appears.
Grant us all Thy safe protection
Till we rest from earthly cares.

2 As the day its journey closing,
Gracious God, as night comes on,
When on beds of rest reposing,
Keep us safe till morning's dawn.
We are helpless, we are helpless;
Thou must save us, or we die.
Grant us food and rest and shelter
Till we reach Thy home on high.

3 Night and noonday are Thy making,
Both were fashioned by Thy love;
Through creation's undertaking,
Both were sent us from above.
They were needed, they were needed,
All Thy mercies to approve.
Grant us hours of earthly pleasures
Till we meet Thee up above.

Amen.
