10. Holy Father, cheer our way

1 Holy Father, cheer our way
with Your love’s perpetual ray;
grant us every closing day
light at evening time.

2 Holy Saviour, calm our fears
when earth’s brightness disappears;
grant us in our latter years
light at evening time.

3 Holy Spirit, from on high
when in mortal pains we lie;
grant us, as we come to die,
light at evening time.

4 Holy God, no dark shall be
round the blessèd Trinity;
those You keep shall always see
light at evening time.
