1 All praise to thee, my God, this night,
for all the blessings of the light!
Keep me, O keep me safe from harm
within the shelter of thine arm!

2 Forgive me, Lord, through Christ, I pray,
the wrong that I have done this day,
that I, before I sleep, may be
at peace with neighbor, self, and thee.

3 O may my soul on thee repose,
and with sweet sleep mine eyelids close.
Refresh my strength, for thine own sake,
to serve thee well when I awake.

4 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
praise God, all creatures here below;
praise God above, ye heavenly host;
praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
