Evening and Morning
Paul Gerhardt, 1666, translation by Richard Massie, 1857; German text
|4. Evening and morning, sunset and dawning,|

Times without number, awake or in slumber,
Thine eye observes us, from danger preserves us,
Causing Thy mercy upon us to shine.
9. Father, O hear me, pardon and spare me;
