Representative Text

1. The tranquil hours steal by
On drowsy wings and slow,
And over all the peaceful sky
The stars of evening glow.

2. No gath'ring clouds I see,
I hear no rising blast,
I fold my tired hands restfully,
As though all storms were past.

3. Yet whether so or not,
O Lord, thou knowest best,
This night let ev'ry anxious thought
And trembling fear have rest.

4 This night I will lie down
In peace beneath thine eye;
Nor heed what ills unseen may frown,
Since thou art ever nigh.

5 I will lie down to sleep,
From every terror free;
Nor wake to tremble or to weep,
Secure, O Lord, in thee!
