C. M.

An evening song.


[Dread Sovereign! let my evening song

Like holy incense rise;

Assist the offerings of my tongue

To reach the lofty skies.

Through all the dangers of the day

Thy hand was still my guard,

And still to drive my wants away

Thy mercy stood prepared.]

Perpetual blessings from above

Encompass me around,

But O how few returns of love

Hath my Creator found!

What have I done for him that died

To save my wretched soul?

How are my follies multiplied,

Fast as my minutes roil

Lord, with this guilty heart of mine

To thy dear cross I flee;

And to thy grace my soul resign,

To be renewed by thee.

Sprinkled afresh with pard'ning blood,

I lay me down to rest,

As in th' embraces of my God,

Or on my Savior's breast.
