78. All Praise to You, My God, This Night

1 All praise to you, my God, this night,
for all the blessings of the light.
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath the shelter of your wings.

2 Forgive me, Lord, for this I pray,
the wrong that I have done this day.
May peace with God and neighbor be,
before I sleep, restored to me.

3 Lord, may I be at rest in you
and sweetly sleep the whole night through.
Refresh my strength, for your own sake,
so I may serve you when I wake.

4 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise him, all creatures here below.
Praise him above, you heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
