And in the Evening (2006) by Audrey Snyder (b. 1953)

And in the evening, when silence comes;
the evening star draws the blue curtains of the sky,
and washes the dusk with silver.

Sleep upon a bed of silence,
sleep and dream.
Dream upon the silence of the night.

And in the evening, when silence comes;
the heav’nly stars stream through interstellar space,
clothed in radiant splendor.

Sleep upon a bed of silence,
sleep and dream.
Dream upon the silence of the night.

- text adapted by Audrey Snyder from the poetry of William Blake (1757-1827)

Blessed Be the Lord, My Rock (2006) by Abbie Betinis (b. 1980)

Blessed be the Lord, my rock, my rock and my fortress,
my stronghold, my deliverer;
my shield and he in whom I take refuge.

We are like breath,
our days are like a passing shadow.

Bow thy heav’ns, O Lord,
come down!
Stretch forth thy hand from on high,
rescue me, deliver me.

I will sing a new song to thee, O God.

- Psalm 144 paraphrase

City Called Heaven (1994) arr. Josephine Poelinitz 

I am a pilgrim, a pilgrim of sorrow,
I’m left in this old wide world, this old wide world alone!
I ain’t got no hope, got no hope for tomorrow.
I’m trying to make it, make heaven my home.

Sometimes I’m tossed and I’m driven, Lord.
Sometimes I just don’t know which way to turn
Oh, I heard of a city, of a city called heaven.
I’m trying to make it, make heaven my home.

Stay With Us from Captive and Free (1999) Egil Hovland (1924-2013)

Stay with us, Lord Jesus, stay with us.
Stay with us, it soon is evening.                                                     
Stay with us, Lord Jesus, stay with us,
it soon is evening, and night is falling.

Jesus Christ, the world’s true light!
Shine so the darkness cannot overcome it!
Stay with us, Lord Jesus, it soon is evening.
Stay with us, Lord Jesus, for night is falling.
Let your light pierce the darkness
and fill your church with its glory.
- Luke 24:29
