"Thou shall lie down and thy sleep
shall be sweet" - Prov. 3:24

1.  NOW the day is over
     Night is drawing nigh 

     Shadows of the evening 

     Steal across the sky.

2.  Now the darkness gathers, 

     Stars, their watches keep, 

     Birds, and beasts, and flowers 

     Soon will be asleep.

3.  Jesus, give the weary 

     Calm and sweet repose 

     With Thy tendrest blessing 

     May mine eyelids close.

4.  Grant to little children 

     Visions bright of Thee 

     Guard the sailors tossing 

     On the deep blue sea.

5.  Comfort every sufferer 

     Watching late in pain 

     Those who plan some evil 

     From their sin restrain.

6.  Through the long night watches 

     May Thine angels spread

     Their white wings above me 

     Watching round my bed.

7.  When the morning wakens 

     Then may I arise

     Pure and fresh, and sinless 

     ln Thy holy eyes.

8.  Glory to the Father

     Glory to the Son,

     And to Thee, blest spirit 

     Whilst all ages run.  Amen
