Lyrics

  1. 1. Come, let us sing an evening hymn
    To calm our minds for rest,
    And each one try, with single eye,
    To praise the Savior best.
  2. 2. Yea, let us sing a sacred song
    To close the passing day,
    With one accord call on the Lord
    And ever watch and pray.
  3. 3. Oh, thank the Lord for grace and gifts
    Renewed in latter days,
    For truth and light to guide us right
    In wisdom's pleasant ways,
  4. 4. For ev'ry line we have received
    To turn our hearts above,
    For ev'ry word and ev'ry good
    That fill our souls with love.
  5. 5. Oh, let us raise a holier strain
    For blessings great as ours,
    And be prepared while angels guard
    Us through our slumb'ring hours.
  6. 6. Oh, may we sleep and wake in joy,
    While life with us remains,
    And then go home beyond the tomb,
    Where peace forever reigns.
  7. Text: William W. Phelps, 1792-1872. Included in the first LDS hymnbook, 1835.
    Music: Tracy Y. Cannon, 1879-1961
