1 Now from the altar of our hearts
Let warmest thanks arise;
Assist us, Lord, to offer up
Our evening sacrifice.
2 This day our God has been our sun,
Our keeper and our guide,
His arm around our weakness thrown,
His angels at our side.
3 Moments and mercies multiplied
Have made up all the day;
Moments came fast, but mercies were
More swift and free than they.
4 New hours, new blessings, and new joys,
Do a new song require;
Till we can praise Thee as we should,
Accept our hearts' desire!
