O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

EVENING PRAYER. 8. 7. 8. 7.
Text from Psalm 91:5

Lyrics
Savior, breathe an evening blessing,
Ere repose our spirits seal:
Sin and want we come confessing,
Thou canst save, and Thou canst heal.

Tho' destruction walk around us,
Tho' the arrows past us fly;
Angel-guards from Thee surround us,
We are safe if Thou art nigh.

Tho' the night be dark and dreary,
Darkness cannot hide from Thee;
Thou art He who, never weary,
Watchest where Thy people by.

Should swift death this night o'ertake us,
And our couch become our tomb,
May the morn in heav'n awake us,
Clad in light and deathless bloom.
