Dim Eve Draws On

( Originally Published 1868 )



ANONYMOUS.

'BEHOLD, the noonday sun of life
Doth seek its western bound,
And fast the length'ning shadows cast
A heavier goom around ;
And all the gow-worm lamps are dead
That, kindling round our way,
Gave fickle promises of joy;
'Abide with us, we pray!"

" Dim eve draws on, and many a friend,
Our early path that blest,
Wrapt in the cerements of the tomb,
Have lain them down to rest;
But Thou, the everlasting Friend,
Whose Spirit's gorious ray
Can gild the dreary vale of death,
'Abide with us, we pray!"
