DREAD Sovereign, let my evening song

Like holy incense rise;

Assist the off'rings of my tongue

To reach the lofty skies.

Through all the dangers of the day

Thy hand was still my guard;

And still to drive my wants away,

Thy mercy stood prepar'd.

Sprinkled afresh with pard'ning blood,

I lay me down to rest;

As in the embraces of my God,

Or on my Saviour's breast.
