But He forgives my follies past
And gives me strength for days to come.

3 I lay my body down to sleep;

His ever-watchful eye will keep
Its constant guard around my bed.

4 Faith in Thy name forbids my fear;
O may Thy presence ne’er depart!
And in the morning may I bear
Thy loving-kindness on my heart!
