Before the ending of the day

Author: John Mason Neale, 1818-1866 Appears in 65 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Before the ending of the day, Creator of the world, we pray, that with thy wonted favour thou wouldst be our guard and keeper now. 2 From all ill dreams defend our eyes, from nightly fears and fantasies; tread under foot our ghostly foe, that no pollution we may know. 3 O Father, that we ask be done, through Jesus Christ, thine only Son, who, with the Holy Ghost and thee, doth live and reign eternally. Amen. Topics: Evening; Protection Used With Tune: TE LUCIS ANTE TERMINUM Text Sources: Pre 8th century
