1 Peacefully round us the shadows are falling,
Glad be our praises and trustful our prayer;
Hear us, O Lord on Thy providence calling,
Lighten our darkness, and banish our care.
2 Hushed are the sheep-bells afar on the moorland,
O’er the still meadows the night breezes sweep,
Faint fall the footsteps in city and hamlet,
Safely the children are folded in sleep.
3 Softly may weary ones rest from their duty,
Bright be the dreams of the troubled and worn;
While through the shade beam the stars in their beauty,
Watching the world till the breaking of morn.
4 Lord of the night, let Thine angels defend us;
Sunshine and gloom are alike unto Thee;
Lord of the day, let Thy Spirit attend us,
Bless us and keep us wherever we be.
