541. Now the Day Is Over

1 Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

2 Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing
May mine eyelids close.

3 Comfort those who suffer,
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.

4 When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.
