239. Providence

1 The day is past and gone,
The evening shades appear;
O may we all remember well
The night of death draws near.

2 Lord, keep us safe this night,
Secure from all our fears;
May angels guard us while we sleep,
Till morning light appears.

3 And if we early rise,
And view th’unwearied sun,
May we set out to win the prize,
And after glory run.
