An Evening Hymn

All praise to thee, my God, this night,

For all the blessings of the light;

Keep me, O keep me, King of Kings,

Beneath thy own almighty wings.

Forgive me, Lord, for they dear Son,

The ill that I this day have done;

That with the world, myself, and Thee,

I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

O may my soul on Thee repose,

And may sweet sleep my eyelids close:

Sleep that may me more vigorous make

To serve my God when I awake.
