1Hear Thy children, Gentle Jesus,
While we breathe our evening prayer,
Save us from all harm and danger,
Take us ’neath Thy sheltering care.
2Save us from the wiles of Satan,
Through the lone and sleepless night,
Sweetly may bright guardian Angels
Keep us ’neath their watchful sight.
3Gentle Jesus! Look in pity
From Thy great white throne above;
All the night Thine heart is wakeful,
Ever Thou Thine own dost love.
4Shades of even fast are falling,
Day is fading into gloom;
When the shades of death fall round us,
Lead Thy ransomed children home.
5Gentle Jesus, hear Thy children
When they sing their hymns to Thee;
Who, with Father and with Spirit,
Art One God eternally. Amen.
1 John1:5This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
