Evening; confidence and peace
HOW DARK the night of cloud and cares, a sky without a star,
when doubts arise to mock my prayers,
and God seems far.
2 Come, then, and make your presence known in joy and faith restored.
My hope is set on God alone: be near me, Lord.
3 The Lord is my encircling shield, a glory round me shed;
in love and power alike revealed, he lifts my head.
4 He hears me from his throne on high, beneath his hand I sleep;
and he who answers every cry his watch will keep.
5 The Lord will take his people’s part! In him, beloved and blest,
the peace of God possess my heart: in him I rest.
