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, Saviour, wash away
All that has been wrong to-day;
Help me every day to be
Good and gentle, more like Thee.
3 Let my near and dear ones be
Always near and dear to Thee;
O 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 Thou, my best and kindest Friend,
Thou wilt love me to the end;
Let me love Thee more and more,
Always better than before.
