203. A Call to Prayer

1 Softly the evening vespers
Hallow the closing day;
Sweetly the Savior whispers,
“Come to the throne and pray.”

Refrain:
Softly I hear Him calling,
Calling at close of day;
Sweetly His tones are falling,
“Come to the throne and pray.”

2 Come, ere the shadows lengthen,
Bring Him thy burdened heart;
Come where His grace may strengthen,
Come from thy cares apart. [Refrain]

3 Smiles of His love await thee,
Lighting His lovely face;
Just to behold His beauty,
Dwell in the secret place. [Refrain]

4 Boldly we may approach Him,
Mercy and grace to own;
Tempted like us, He bid us
Come to the Father’s throne. [Refrain]
