Lord, Thou wilt hear me when I pray;
I am forever Thine;
I fear before Thee all the day,
Nor would I dare to sin,
And while I rest my weary head
From cares and busíness free,
íTis sweet conversing on my bed
With my own heart and Thee.

I pay this evening sacrifice,
And when my work is done,
Great God, my faith and hope relies
Upon thy grace alone,
Thus with my thoughts composed to peace,
Iíll give mine eyes to sleep;
Thy hand in safety keeps my days,
And will my slumbers keep.
