#74: Now the Day is Over

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Now the day is over,

Night is drawing nigh;

Shadows of the evening

Steal across the sky.


Jesus, give the weary

Calm and sweep repose;

With thy tend’rest blessing

may our eyelids close.


Grant to little children

Visions bright of Thee;

Guard the sailors tossing

On the deep blue sea.


Thru the long night-watches

May Thine angel spread

Their white wings above me,

Watching round my bed.


When the morning wakens,

Then may I arise

Pure and fresh and sinless

In Thy holy eyes.
