AN EVENING HYMN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Lord, I have passed another day
Last Line: To listen to my evening prayer.


Lord, I have passed another day,
And come to thank Thee for Thy care;
Forgive my faults in work and play,
And listen to my evening prayer.

Thy favor gives me daily bread,
And friends, who all my wants supply;
And safely now I rest my head.
Preserved and guarded by Thine eye.

Look down in pity, and forgive
Whate'er I've said or done amiss;
And help me, every day I live.
To serve Thee better than on this.

Now, while I speak, be pleased to take
A helpless child beneath Thy care;
And condescend, for Jesus' sake,
To listen to my evening prayer.
