tr., John Brownlie
AN EVENING HYMN
epseusamen se ten aletheian, loge
O Word of Truth! in devious paths
My wayward feet have trod,
I have not kept the day serene
I gave at morn to God.
And now 'tis night, and night within,
O God, the light hath fled!
I have not kept the vow I made
When morn its glories shed.
For clouds of gloom from nether world
Obscured my upward way;
O Christ the Light, Thy light bestow
And turn my night to day!
