Lyrics from A Collection of Sacred Hymns for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe, 1840

Hymn 205
C.M.
1. Come, let us sing an evening hymn,
To calm our minds for rest,
And each one try, with single eye,
To praise the Saviour best.

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. O, 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. For every line we have received,
To turn our hearts above;
For every word and every good
That fills our souls with love.

5. O let us raise a holier strain,
For blessings great as ours,
And be prepared, while angels guard
Us through our slumb'ring hours.

6. O may we sleep and wake in joy,
While life with us remains;
And then go home beyond the tomb,
Where peace for ever reigns.
