1 My Father, for another night
of quiet sleep and rest,
for all the joy of morning light,
thy holy name be blest.
2 Now with the new-born day I give
myself anew to thee,
that as thou willest I may live,
and what thou willest be.
3 Whate'er I do, things great or small,
whate'er I speak or frame,
thy glory may I seek in all,
do all in Jesus' name.
4 My Father, for his sake, I pray,
thy child accept and bless;
and lead me by thy grace to-day
in paths of righteousness.

My Father, for another night. Sir H. W. Baker. [Morning.] Contributed to the revised edition of Hymns Ancient & Modern, 1875. It is repeated in a few collections, including the Additional Hymns, added to the Leeds Sunday School Hymn Book, 1878. In this last case it is ascribed to “Oakes" in error.
