O Light of life, O Savior dear,
Before we sleep, bow down Thine ear;
Through dark and day, o’er land and sea,
We have no other hope but Thee.
Oft from Thy royal road we part,
Lost in the mazes of the heart;
We are gathered for Thy blessing,
We will wait upon our God;
We will trust in Him Who loved us,
And Who bought us with His blood.
Spirit, now melt and move
All of our hearts with love,
Breathe on us from above
Eternity is drawing near,
O unconverted soul.
Dost thou not fear the troubled waves
That o’er thee soon may roll?
O fly to Him, the blessed One,
Who pleads thy cause on high;
While yet His mercy calleth thee,
Say, wherefore wilt thou…
Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.
Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds, and beasts and flowers
Soon will be asleep.
Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
Now God be with us, for the night is closing:
The light and darkness are of His disposing,
And ‘neath His shadow here to rest we yield us,
For He will shield us.
Let evil thoughts and spirits flee before us;
Till morning cometh, watch, O…
Nothing between my soul and my Savior,
Naught of this world’s delusive dream;
I have renounced all sinful pleasure;
Jesus is mine, there’s nothing between.
Nothing between, like worldly pleasure;
Habits of life, though harmless they seem;
Must not my heart from Him ever sever;
In the warfare that is raging
For the truth and for the right,
When the conflict fierce is raging
With the powers of the night,
God needs people brave and true;
May He then depend on you?
May the Lord depend on you?
Tell of Christ Who saves from sin;
Make Him known-make Him known!
He has called you souls to win,
Make Him known!
Make the blessed Savior known,
Till all hearts shall be His throne;
Till He rules the world alone,
Make Him known.…
Hark to the call of the New Crusade,
Christ over all will King be made;
Out to the world let the challenge ring:
Make Christ King!
Hail to the King of kings! Triumphant Redeemer!
On march the soldiers of the New Crusade.
Lord of my life! Whose tender care
Hath led me on till now,
Here lowly at the hour of prayer
Before Thy throne I bow;
I bless Thy gracious hand, and pray
Forgiveness for another day.
Oh, may I daily, hourly, strive
