52 ~ Now the Day Is Over



1

Now the day is over;
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.


2

Father, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With your tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.


3

Through the long night-watches,
May your angels spread
Their white wings above me,
Watching round my bed.
