1 At the close of every day,
Lord, to Thee I kneel and pray.
Look upon Thy little child,
Look in love and mercy mild.
2 O forgive and wash away
All my naughtiness this day.
When I sleep and when I wake
Bless me for my Saviour’s sake.
3 Father, Thou hast heard our prayer,
And we own Thy tender care.
For, by Thee, in safety kept,
We have laid us down and slept.
4 Teach us now our hearts to raise,
In our morning hymn of praise.
And for Jesus’ sake we pray
Bless and keep us through the day.Source: Northfield Hymnal No. 3 #55
