1.	The day is past and over, 
	all thanks, O Lord, to thee! 
	We pray thee that offenseless 
	the hours of dark may be. 
	O Jesus, keep us in thy sight, 
	and guard us through the coming night. 

2.	The joys of day are over; 
	we lift our hearts to thee, 
	and call on thee that sinless 
	the hours of dark may be. 
	O Jesus, make their darkness light, 
	and guard us through the coming night. 

3.	The toils of day are over; 
	we raise our hymn to thee, 
	and ask that free from peril 
	the hours of dark may be. 
	O Jesus, keep us in thy sight, 
	and guard us through the coming night. 

4.	Be thou our souls' preserver, 
	O God, for thou dost know 
	how many are the perils 
	through which we have to go. 
	Lord Jesus Christ, O hear our call, 
	and guard and save us from them all.
