eXTReMe Tracker

Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

The Day is slowly wending


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 Saviorís 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
