611 Now the solemn shadows darken

612 Savior, abide with us

613 Savior, breathe an evening blessing

614 Sun of my soul, thou Savior dear

615 Sweet Savior, bless us ere we go

616 The evening's shadowy dimness

617 The day is past and over

618 The radiant morn hath passed away

619 Yet one more day is well-nigh flown

620 Be with us all for evermore
