1 Jesus, Redeemer of the world,
Word of the Father throned on high,
light from the light invisible,
and watchful guardian over all:

you set the bounds of night and day;
give to our wearied bodies rest
in night's enfolding quietness.

3 You broke the chains of death and hell:
Lord, free us from our ancient foe
and let him never lead astray
those you have ransomed by your blood.

4 Lord, while we live for this short time
as mortals clothed in earthbound frame,
refresh us now with restful sleep
that waking we may watch with you.
