Catechism 359. Hushed was the evening hymn


Arthur S. Sullivan, 1874

James D. Burns, 1857

Hushed was the evening hymn,

The temple courts were dark,

The lamp was burning dim

Before the sacred ark,

When suddenly a voice divine

Rang through the silence of the shrine.

The old man, meek and mild,

The priest of Israel, slept;

His watch the temple-child,

The little Levite, kept;

And what from Eli's sense was sealed,

The Lord to Hannah's son revealed.

O give me Samuel's ear,

The open ear, O Lord,

Alive and quick to hear

Each whisper of thy word!

Like him to answer at thy call,

And to obey thee first of all.

O give me Samuel's heart,

A lowly heart, that waits

Where in thy house thou art,

Or watches at thy gates!

By day and night, a heart that still

Moves at the breathing of thy will.

O give me Samuel's mind,

A sweet, unmurmuring faith,

Obedient and resigned

To thee in life and death!

That I may read with childlike eyes

Truths that are hidden from the wise.
