A hymn by Scottish Anglican Henry Francis Lyte based on the melody of "Eventide" written by William Henry Monk. Lyte finished the peom and set it to melody at 1847 when he was at the last stage of life with dying from tuberculosis. Powerful words set in "Eventide" - with his struggles and prayers at the end of his life.
