33. Now the Day is Over

1 Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

2 Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing
May our eye lids close.

3 Grant to little children
Visions bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep, blue sea.

4 Comfort every sufferer
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil,
From their sins restrain.

5 When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure and fresh and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.

Amen.
