Verse 1
God, who made the earth and heaven, 
Darkness and light: 
You the day for work have given, 
For rest the night. 
May your angel guards defend us, 
Slumber sweet your mercy send us, 
Holy dreams and hopes attend us, 
All through the night. 
Verse 2
And when morn again shall call us 
To run life's way, 
May we still whate'er befall us, 
Your will obey. 
From the pow'r of evil hide us, 
In the narrow pathway guide us, 
Never be your smile denied us 
All through the day. 
Verse 3
Guard us waking, guard us sleeping, 
And, when we die, 
May we in your mighty keeping 
All peaceful lie. 
When the trumpet's call shall wake us, 
Then, O Lord, do not forsake us, 
But to reign in glory take us 
With you on high. 
Verse 4
Holy Father, throned in heaven, 
All holy Son, 
Holy Spirit freely given, 
Blest Three in One: 
Grant us grace we now implore you, 
Till we lay our crowns before you 
And in worthier strains adore you 
While ages run.
