An Evening Hymn

Now that the sun hath veiled his light,
and bid the world goodnight,
to the soft bed my body I dispose;
but where shall my soul repose?
Dear God, even in Thy arms. And can there be
any so sweet security?
Then to thy rest, O my soul and singing, praise
the mercy that prolongs thy days.
Hallelujah.
