Hymn Story: An Evening Prayer

The hymn “An Evening Prayer” was written by C. Maud Battersby. I’ve been unable to find any additional information on Battersby.

The hymn is sometimes referred to by the first line “If I have wounded any soul today.”

Charles Gabirel wrote the tune around 1911. Gabriel wrote the music for numerous hymns and often worked with Fannie Crosby. In 1912, he began working with Homer Rodeheaver’s publishing company and worked on many song books and collections.

This song has been performed by many artists, including Elvis Presley and Marty Robbins.
