Father Almighty, Darkness Now Is Deepening

Representative Text

1 Father Almighty, darkness now is deep'ning,
And we commend us to Thy gracious keeping;
Oh, may Thine angels guards us in our sleeping,
Protect us through this night!

2 Blessed Lord Jesus, Thou whose side is riven,
Thou by whose wounds our sins are all forgiven:
Draw us to Thee, to Thy dear self in heaven,
From ev'ry sin release!

3 O Holy Spirit, Christ the Son explaining,
Who with the Father and the Son art reigning,
And for us all eternal life art gaining:
Direct us by Thy light!

4 Father and Son and Holy Spirit, blending
All three in One in ages without ending:
Oh, let Thy blessing on us be descending,
Grant us Thy perfect peace!
