Now say good night, O Father be my refugeTune: MELCOMBE (Webbe)
Published in 2 hymnals
1 Now say good night! O Father be
My refuge still; to Thee I flee.
When darkness, death, and terrors rise,
Thy grace shall still for me suffice.
2 All praise to Christ my Savior give,
For He this day hath let me live
My life away in His dear name:
"To live is Christ, to die is gain."
3 O Holy Ghost, Thy grace impart,
To rest in Christ my troubled heart.
O sweet the rest Thy grace goth bring,
And bids me to my Saviour cling.
4 Now say good night! May angels bright
Kep watching o'er me through the night,
And spread their guardian, heavenly wings,
O'er these my wearied, slumb'ring limbs.
5 "And now I lay me down to sleep;
I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray, Thee, Lord, my soul to take."
6 Now say good night! To all, good night!
God keep you safe till morning's light,
That with His praise you all may wake;
"And this I ask for Jesus sake."
