Weary, Now I Go to Rest

Representative Text

1 Weary now I go to rest,
Close my eyes, Lord, by Thee blest;
Father, let Thine eye instead
Watch and ward keep o'er my bed.

2 What I have done ill this day,
Lord, forgive it all, I pray;
Thy rich grace and Jesus' blood
Are my trust and highest good.

3 All who are akin to me,
Let them rest, Lord, safe in Thee;
All mankind, both great and small,
Do Thou kindly keep them all.
