77. All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night

1 All praise to thee, my God, this night
for all the blessings of the light.
Keep me, oh, keep me, King of kings,
beneath thine own almighty wings.

2 Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son,
the ill that I this day have done;
that with the world, myself, and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

3 Teach me to live, that I may dread
the grace as little as my bed.
Teach me to die, that so I may
rise glorious at the awesome day.

4 Oh, may my soul in thee repose,
and may sweet sleep mine eyelids close.
Sleep that shall me more vig'rous make
to serve my God when I awake.

5 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise him, all creatures here below;
praise him above, ye heav'nly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
