The Hymn "Now the Day is Over" was one of those sung at the hymn service lead by Revd. Ernest Courtenay Carter.
Sabine Baring-Gould (1825-1878) wrote the lyrics, in 1865, and the tune Merrial was composed by Sir Joseph Barnby (1838-1896) in 1868.
1. Now the day is over,
2. Now the darkness gathers,
3. Jesus, give the weary
4. Grant to little children
5. Comfort those who suffer,
6. Through the long night watches
7. When the morning wakens,
8. Glory to the Father,
Merrial (Dykes) (midi)
