Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Evening Prayer   Misc. Gospel

Words and music: Charles H. Gabriel


If (D) I have wounded any (G) soul to(B7) day,  (E7)
If (A7) I have caused one foot to (D) go astray. (A) 
If (D) I have wal (D7) ked in my own (G) wilful (Bdim) way,
	Dear (D) Lord (A7) for (D) give.

If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I myself should suffer through the strain.
	Dear Lord forgive.

If I have been perverse, or hard or cold.
If I have longed for shelter in Thy fold.
When Thou hast given me some fort to hold
	Dear Lord forgive.

Forgive the sins I have confessed to Thee,
Forgive the secret sins I do not see.
That which I know not, father, teach Thou me.
	Help me to live.

This is an extra verse that comes after verse two but can make the song a bit too long
and is not usually sung.

If I have craved for joys that are not mine,
If I have left my wayward heart repine,
Dwelling on things of earth, not things divine.
	Dear Lord forgive.
