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 tend'rest blessing
may our eyelids close.

3 Grant to little children
visions bright of thee;
guard the sailors, tossing
on the deep blue sea.

4 Comfort ev'ry suff'rer
watching late in pain;
those who plan some evil
from their sin restrain.

5 Through the long night watches
may thine angels spread
their white wings above me,
watching round my bed.

6 Glory to the Father,
glory to the Son,
and to thee, blest Spirit,
whilst all ages run.
