The words are after John Henry Newman with music (c) Noel S Donnelly.
This is very suitable either in unison or as a full choir piece for evening or night prayer. This lovely setting is sung by the St Mungo Singers.
May the Lord protect us all the day long
Till the shades lengthen and evening comes
And the busy world is hushed
And the evening of life is over
And the day is done.
Then in his goodness may God give us safe lodging
And a holy rest, and peace at the last.
