The Day Is Spent And Evening Shadows Fal


The day is spent, and evening shadows fall,
Our wearied souls for sweet refreshment call;
Far from the world, Lord, in Thy house we meet,
And lay our burdens at Thy blessed feet.

Refrain:
Lord, meet with us, with us abide,
While softly falls the eventide;
Make Thou our hearts within us glow,
Till all Thy holy will we know!

We drop the cares and sorrows of the day,
And come with Thee apart, to rest and pray;
Lord, in our midst be Thou, we humbly plead,
And grant the blessing that our spirits need. [Refrain]

How blest the hour that heart to heart we spend,
In tender converse with our heav’nly Friend;
When gathered here together in His name,
The promise of His holy word we claim. [Refrain]
