Father in high heaven dwelling May our



eHymnBook # 541
Title:
First Line:
Father in high heaven dwelling May our

Father, in high heaven dwelling,
may our evening song be telling
Of Thy mercy large and free:
Through the day Thy love hath fed us,
Through the day Thy love hath fed us,
With divinist charity.


This day's sins, O pardon, Saviour,
Evil thoughts, perverse behaviour,
Envy, pride, and vanity;
From the world, the flesh, deliver,
Save us now, and save us ever,
O Thou Lamb of calvary!


From enticements of the devil,
From the might of spirits evil,
Be our shield and panoply:
Let Thy power this night defend us,
And a heavenly peace attend us,
And angelic company.


Whilst the night-dews are distilling,
Holy Ghost, each heart be filling
With Thine own serenity:
Softly let our eyes be closing,
Loving souls on Thee reposing,
Ever blessed Trinity.
