The time of day:

To cease your labors,relax and rest


To quieten down the children

And gather them back to the nest


To gaze out at nature, the colors in vast array

To listen to evening sounds, what she has to say.


The beauty that’s all around us

Our eyes can plainly see.


We thank our Heavenly Father above:

For the world He’s given to you and me


And for His loving kindness

And giving us His Son


His never ending love

For each and every one.


For all these things we give Him thanks and honor and praise

And for always being with us through each and every day
