64. Evening Hymn

1 Peacefully, tranquilly,
Passing away,
Yonder the light of the
Dear Sabbath day;
Peacefully, tranquilly,
Passing away,
Yonder the light of the
Dear Sabbath day.

Refrain:
Father, we turn to Thee,
Seeking Thy aid;
O, may our trust in Thee
Ever be staid.

2 Thanks for Thy holy word,
Graciously given;
Thanks for the narrow way
Leading to heav’n;
Thanks for Thy holy word,
Graciously given;
Thanks for the narrow way
Leading to heav’n. [Refrain]

3 Silently, pensively,
Evening draws near;
Voices in chorus sweet,
Gently we hear;
Silently, pensively,
Evening draws near;
Voices in chorus sweet,
Gently we hear. [Refrain]

4 Lovingly, tenderly,
Now, on Thy breast,
Hold us in safety, Lord,
Fold us to rest;
Lovingly, tenderly,
Now, on Thy breast,
Hold us in safety, Lord,
Fold us to rest. [Refrain]
