6832. Through the Night Thy Angels Kept

1. Through the night Thy angels kept
Watch beside me while I slept;
Now the dark has passed away,
Thank Thee, Lord, for this new day.

2. North and south and east and west
May Thy holy name be blest;
Everywhere beneath the sun,
As in Heaven, Thy will be done.

3. Give me food that I may live;
Every naughtiness forgive;
Keep all evil things away
From Thy little child this day.
