16055. A Prayer For Eventide

1 Deep in the west now the sun is sink­ing low,
And skies in beau­ty reflect its ra­di­ant glow:
What have I done, O Lord, for Thee to­day?
Have I been faith­ful to Thee along my way?

2 Have I been will­ing my lit­tle cross to bear?
Have I been will­ing my bro­ther’s cross to share?
Have I revealed to those who walk with me
That I am walking hand in hand, O Lord, with Thee?

3 Forgive me, Father, where I have failed today;
My eyes unveil, Lord, and hear me while I pray;
And if for me the sun shall rise no more,
Receive me, Father, to Thyself on yonder shore.

Amen, amen.
