When Shades Of Night Are Falling


When shades of night are falling,
Over life’s restless sea,
Lord, be Thou near
To comfort and cheer
And tenderly pilot me.

Many the shoals around me,
Many the rocks I see.
Stand by my side;
Oh, be Thou my Guide,
And constantly pilot me.

Soon is the voyage ended,
Soon I at home shall be.
Storms soon shall cease;
To harbors of peace
Thou safely wilt pilot me.
