1. Now the day is over, night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening steal across the sky.
2. Jesus, give the weary, calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing may our eye lids close.
3. Grant to little children visions bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing on the deep blue sea.
4. Through the long night watches, may Thine angels spread
their white wings above me, watching around my bed.
5. When the morning wakens, then may I arise,
pure and fresh and sinless in Thy holy eyes.
