1 Giver and guardian of our sleep,
To praise thy name we wake;
Still, Lord, thy chosen servants keep,
For thine own mercy's sake.
2 The blessing of another day
We thankfully receive;
O may we only thee obey,
And to thy glory live.
3 Upon us by thy mighty hand,
Our words and thoughts restrain;
Bow every soul to thy command,
Nor let our faith be vain.
4 Subject of hope, we wait thy hour
Which shall salvation bring;
When all we are shall own thy power
And dwell with Christ, our King.
