1 The sun's last beam of light is gone,
The shades of night come swiftly on.
O Christ, our Light, upon us shine
Lest we to sin's dark ways incline.
2 We thank Thee that throughout the day
Thine angles kept all harm away.
Thy grace from care and vexing fear
Hath led us on in safety here.
3 Lord, if we angered Thee today,
Remember not our sins, we pray,
But let Thy mercy o'er them sweep,
And give us calm and restful sleep.
4 Let angels guard our sleeping hours
And drive away all evil powers;
Our soul and body, while we sleep,
In safety, gracious Father, keep.
