21. Before the ending of the day

1 Before the ending of the day,
Creator of the world we pray
That with Thy wonted favour, Thou
Wouldst be our guard and keeper now.

2 From all ill dreams defend our sight,
From fears and terrors of the night;
Withhold from us our ghostly foe,
That spot of sin we may not know.

3 O Father, that we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ, Thine only Son
Who, with the Holy Ghost and Thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
