God who madest earth and heav'n,
Darkness and light,
Who the day for toil hath giv’n
For rest the night,
May thy angel guards defend us,
slumber sweet thy mercy send us,
Holy dreams and hopes attend us,
This livelong night.
Guard us waking, guard us sleeping
And when we die,
May we in thy mighty keeping, all peaceful lie
When the last dread call shall wake us,
Do not thou, our God, forsake us.
But to reign in glory take us
With thee on high.
