1 Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.
2 Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep;
Birds, and beasts, and flowers
Soon will be asleep.
3 Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.
4 Grant to little children
Visions bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors, tossing
On the deep blue sea.
5 Comfort every sufferer
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sins restrain.
6 Through the long night-watches,
May Thine angels spread
Their white wings above me,
Watching round my bed.
7 When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.
8 Glory to the Father,
Glory to the Son,
And to Thee, blest Spirit,
Whilst all ages run.
