555. The Day Is Past and Over

1 The day is past and over;
All thanks, O Lord, to Thee!
I pray Thee now that sinless
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, keep us in Thy sight
And save me thro' the coming night.

2 The joys of day are over;
We lift our hearts to Thee
And ask Thee that offenseless
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
And guard me thro' the coming night.

3 The toils of day are over;
I raise the hymn to Thee
And ask that free from peril
The hours of dark may be.
O Jesus, make their darkness light
And guard me thro' the coming night.

4 Lord, that in death I sleep not,
And lest my Foe should say,
"I have prevailed against him,"
Lighten mine eyes, I pray.
O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight,
And guard me through the coming night.

5 Be Thou our soul's Preserver,
O God, for Thou dost know
How many are the perils
Through which we have to go;
Lover of men, oh, hear my call
And guard and save me from them all!

Amen.
