Daily Prayer: Evening

27. Now from the altar of my heart

C.M.

Beatitudo:

John Bacchus Dykes, 1875

Nativity:

William Henry Monk, 1861

John Mason, 1683

Now from the altar of my heart

Let incense flames arise;

Assist me, Lord, to offer up

Mine evening sacrifice.

Minutes and mercies multiplied

Have made up all this day;

Minutes came quick, but mercies were

More fleet and free than they.

New time, new favour, and new joys

Do a new song require;

Till I shall praise thee as I would,

Accept my heart's desire.

Amen.
