“He will lay me down in peace" - Ps 4:8

1.  SUN of my soul, Thou Saviour dear,

     It is not night if Thou be near,

     Oh may no earthborn cloud arise

     To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.

2.  When the soft dews of kindly sleep 

     My wearied eyelids gently sleep,

     Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 

     For ever on my Saviour's breast.

3.  Abide with me from morn till eve, 

     For without Thee I cannot live 

     Abide with me when night is nigh 

     For without Thee I dare not die,

4.  If some poor wandering child or Thine 

     Have spurned to-day the voice divine 

     Now, Lord, the gracious work begin 

     Let him no more lie down in sin.

5.  Watch by the sick, enrich the poor

     With blessings from Thy boundless store,

     Be every mourner's sleep to-night, 

     Like infant's slumbers pure and light.

6.  Come near and bless us when we wake, 

     Ere thought the world our way we take 

     Fill in the ocean of Thy love

     We lose ourselves in heaven above.  Amen
