AN EVENING HYMN FOR A LITTLE FAMILY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Now condescend, almighty king
Last Line: Are both alike to thee.


Now condescend, Almighty King,
To bless this little throng;
And kindly listen while we sing
Our pleasant evening song.

We come to own the power Divine
That watches o'er our days;
For this our feeble voices join
In hymns of cheerful praise.

Before Thy sacred footstool, see
We bend in humble prayer,
A happy little family,
To ask Thy tender care.

May we in safety sleep to-night,
From every danger free,
Because the darkness and the light
Are both alike to Thee.
