A CHILD'S EVENING HYMN, by            
First Line: Shepherd jesus, in thy arms
Last Line: Angels watching over me!


Shepherd Jesus, in Thy arms
Let Thy little lamo repose,
Safe and free from all alarms
In the love the Shepherd shows;
May my slumber quiet be,
Angels watching over me!

Often mother dear has told
How the children Thou didst bless,
And I know that in Thy fold
All is joy and happiness:
May my slumber quiet be,
Angels watching over me!

Shepherd Jesus, make Thy child
Pure and gentle as the dew,
Keep my spirit underfiled
Waking, sleeping, kind and true:
May my slumber quiet be,
Angels watching over me!
