Day is past and gone ;
Darkness hastens on :
Blessed Lord, in mercy keep
Angel guards around Thy sheep.

"Work again is past ;
Rest has come at last :
Blessed Lord, forgive, I pray,
All I have done wrong to-day.

Soon in silence deep
God will give me sleep :
Blessed Lord, be Thou my Light
In the watches of the night.

When the night is o er,
And I wake once more,
Blessed Lord, Who lovest me,
Make Thy child to follow Thee.
