1 Now the light has gone away;
Father, listen while I pray,
Asking Thee to watch and keep
And to send me quiet sleep.
2 Jesus, Savior, wash away
All that has been wrong today.
Help me ev'ry day to be
Good and gentle, more like Thee.
3 Let my near and dear ones be
Always near and dear to Thee.
Oh, bring me and all I love
To Thy happy home above.
4 Now my evening praise I give;
Thou didst die that I might live.
All my blessings come from Thee--
O how good Thou art to me!
5 Jesus, best and kindest Friend,
Thou wilt love me to the end.
Spirit blest, whom I adore,
Let me love Thee more and more.
