Words for a Sunday Evening

Abide with us, Lord, for it is toward the evening and day is far spent: abide with us, and with your whole church. Abide with us in the evening of the day, in the evening of life, in the evening of the world. Abide with us in your grace and mercy, in you holy word and Sacrament, in your comfort and your blessing. Abide with us in the night of distress and fear, in the night of doubt and temptation, in the night of bitter death, when these shall overtake us. Abide with us and all your faithful ones, O Lord, in time and in eternity.
From Rhythm of Life: A Celtic Prayer Book by David Adams
