1  Through the day Thy love hath spared us,
Now we lay us down to rest:
Through the silent watches guard us,
Let no foe our peace molest.
Jesus, Thou our Guardian be;
Sweet it is to trust in Thee.

2  Pilgrims here on earth and strangers,
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
Us and ours preserve from dangers;
In Thine arms may we repose
And, when life's short day is past,
Rest with Thee in heaven at last.
