  1. My Evening Prayer
    by Charles H. Gabriel


    If I have wounded any soul to-day,
    If I have caused one foot to go astray,
    If I have walked in my own wilful way—
    Good Lord, forgive!

    If I have uttered idle words or vain,
    If I have turned aside from want or pain,
    Lest I myself should suffer through the strain—
    Good Lord, forgive!

    If I have craved for joys that are not mine,
    If I have let my wayward heart repine,
    Dwelling on things of earth, not things divine—
    Good Lord, forgive!

    If I have been perverse, or hard, or cold,
    If I have longed for shelter in Thy fold,
    When Thou hast given me some part to hold—
    Good Lord, forgive.

    Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee,
    Forgive the secret sins I do not see,
    That which I know not, Father, teach Thou me—
    Help me to live.



  2. O Lord
    by George Edward Lynch Cotton,
    from Short Prayers and other helps to devotion

    O Lord,
    Who art the Author of every good gift both
    To my body and to my soul,
    I pray Thee, if it please Thee,
    To grant to me the blessing of refreshing rest,
    That when I wake up in the morning,
    I may be the fitter to serve Thee,
    for the sake of Jesus Christ our Saviour.
    Amen.



  3. O God
    by T. T. Carter,
    from The Guide To Heaven

    O God, my Heavenly Father,
    I thank Thee for taking care of me to-day.
    Keep me through the night safe and pure and good.

    Forgive me, for Jesus Christ's sake,
    What I have done wrong to-day.

    Bless, O Lord, my Father, Mother, Brothers,
    Sisters, my Master, my Teachers, and
    the Clergy of this Parish; for Jesus Christ's sake.
    Amen.



  4. Lord, Keep Me
    by D. F. Sprigg, D.D.
    from Short Prayers

    Lord, keep me safe this night,
    Secure from all my fears;
    May angels guard me while I sleep.
    Till morning light appears.
    Amen.



  5. As I Lay Down
    by Catherine Pulsifer

    As I lay down to rest
    Father I thank you for this day
    Today I tried to do my best
    And follow your direction as you say.

    Be with me as I sleep
    Keep me safe I pray
    I pray in the morning we will meet
    And tomorrow will be a great day.

    I pray to you in the
    mighty name of Jesus.
    Amen



  6. For My Son
    Author Unknown


    Then by your side as I nightly kneel
    To the All-Father I make appeal
    That He will guide you and guard and bless,
    Touch you with love and unselfishness.
    Mold you and lead you life's path along
    That you grown manly and true and strong.
    That He may grant you a future bright -
    Good-night, my baby, Good-night.



  7. Good Night Dear Lord
    by MaryFrancis Ohu


    Good night dear Lord, my God.
    As I rest in your loving care tonight,
    may I ponder your love and instructions,
    that I may know you more and more,
    in Jesus name.
    Amen



  8. A Grateful Heat
    by George Herbert


    Thou hast given so much to me,
    Give one thing more, a grateful heart,
    Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
    As if thy blessings had spare days;
    But such a heart, whose pulse may be
    Thy praise.
