Evening Prayer (Stainer):
John Stainer, 1898
Mary Duncan, 1839
Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me;
Bless thy little lamb tonight:
Through the darkness be thou near me,
Keep me safe till morning light.
All this day thy hand has led me,
And I thank thee for thy care;
Thou hast warmed me, clothed and fed me;
Listen to my evening prayer!
Let my sins be all forgiven;
Bless the friends I love so well:
Take us all at last to heaven,
Happy there with thee to dwell.
