538. Now the Shades of Night are Gone

1 Now the shades of night are gone,
Now the morning light is come.
Lord, may we be Thine today;
Drive the shades of sin away.

2 Fill our souls with heav’nly light,
Banish doubt and cleanse our sight.
In Thy service, Lord, today
Help us labor, help us pray.

3 Keep our haughty passions bound,
Save us from our foes around;
Going out and coming in,
Keep us safe from ev'ry sin.

4 When our work of life is past,
Oh, receive us safe at last!
Night of sin will be no more
When we reach the heav’nly shore.

Amen.
