praise to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, O keep me, King of Kings,
Beneath thy own almighty wings.
Forgive me, Lord,
for thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and Thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.
O may my soul on
And may sweet sleep my eyelids close:
Sleep that may me more vigorous make
To serve my God when I awake.
