I come to thee, my Saviour,

So weary and so worn:

‘Tis late, and I’ve been toiling

Ere since the early morn;

And now I am so tired

I scarce know what to say,

Bend low thine ear, my Saviour,

And hear me while I pray.

+++++

Take thou my day, Lord Jesus,

Cleanse it from every stain;

Forgive if I have grieved thee

Or caused a moment’s pain

To one of thy least children;–

Thou knowest I’ve truly tried

To follow thee in serving

And in thee to abide.

+++++

Command thy richest blessings

On all who thee obey,

And may that happy number

Increase each passing day.

Prepare us for the morrow

And grant that it may be

A type of heaven’s sabbath,

Where we may rest with thee.
