EVENING HYMN.

 {red pattern of leaves}

GLORY TO THEE, MY GOD, THIS NIGHT,
FOR ALL THE BLESSINGS OF THE LIGHT
KEEP ME, O KEEP ME, KING OF KINGS,
BENEATH THY OWN ALMIGHTY WINGS.
 {red pattern of leaves}
FORGIVE ME, LORD, FOR THY DEAR SON
THE ILL THAT I THIS DAY HAVE DONE;
THAT WITH THE WORLD MYSELF AND THEE
I, ERE I SLEEP, AT PEACE MAY BE.
 {red pattern of leaves}
TEACH ME TO LIVE, THAT I MAY DREAD
THE GRAVE AS LITTLE AS MY BED
TEACH ME TO DIE, THAT SO I MAY
RISE GLORIOUS AT THE AWFUL DAY.
 {red pattern of leaves}

PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW;
PRAISE HIM ALL CREATURES HERE BELOW
PRAISE HIM ABOVE, YE HEAV'NLY HOST
PRAISE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST.
