Saviour, now the day is ending
Saviour, now the day is ending. Sarah Doudney* (1841-1926).
According to JJ, p. 307, this was published in the Sunday School Union’s Songs of Gladness (1871). It was a hymn for the close of day, but with particular reference to the ending of a school day or a Sunday-school class. It had four 6-line stanzas:
Saviour, now the day is ending, And the shades of evening fall, Let Thy Holy Dove descending, Bring Thy mercy to us all; Set Thy seal on every heart, Jesus, bless us ere we part!
Bless the gospel message, spoken In Thine own appointed way, Give each fainting soul a token Of Thy tender love to-day; Set Thy seal on every heart,Jesus, bless us ere we part!
