#76: Savior, Breath an Evening Blessing

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Savior, breath an evening blessing

Ere repose our spirits seal.

Sin and want we come confessing,

Thou canst save, and thou canst heal.

2

Tho destruction walk around us, Tho the arrows past us fly,

Angel-guards from Thee surround us —

We are safe if thou art nigh.

3

Tho the night be dark and dreary,

Darkness cannot hide from Thee;

Thou art He who, never weary,

Watchest where Thy people be.

4

Should swift death this night o’er take us

And our couch become our tomb,

May the morn in heav’n avake us,

Clad in light and deathless bloom.
