553. Through the Day thy Love hath Spared Us

1 Thro' the day Thy love hath spared us,
Now we lay us down to rest:
Thro' the silent watches guard us,
Let no foe our peace molest.
Jesus, Thou our Guardian be;
Sweet it is to trust in Thee.

2 Pilgrims here on earth and strangers,
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
Us and ours preserve from dangers;
In Thine arms may we repose
And, when life's short day is past,
Rest with Thee in heav'n at last.

Amen.
