1 Now the light has gone away;
Father, listen while I pray,
Asking you to watch and keep
And to send me quiet sleep.
2 Jesus, Savior, wash away
All that has been wrong today;
Make me more like you each day
In all that I do and say.
3 Let my near and dear ones stand
In the hollow of your hand;
Oh, bring me and all I love
To your happy home above.
4 Now my evening praise I give;
You once died that I might live.
All my blessings come from you
Through your kindness ever new.
5 O my blest and dearest Friend,
You will love me to the end.
Let me love you more and more,
Always better than before.
