Hymn/Song Information

God that madest earth and heaven Dark




God, that madest earth
and Heaven,
darkness and light;
Who the day for toil hast given,
for rest the night;
May Thine angel guards defend us,
Slumber sweet Thy mercy send us;
Holy dreams and hopes attend us,
all through the night.


And when morn again
shall call us,
to run life’s way,
May we still, whatever befall us,
Thy will obey.
From the power of evil hide us,
In the narrow pathway guide us,
Nor Thy smile be ever denied us
all through the day.


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.


---Alternative verses---


God, that madest earth
and heaven,
darkness and light;
Who the day for toil hast given,
for rest the night;
May Thine angel guards defend us,
Slumber sweet Thy mercy send us;
Holy dreams and hopes attend us,
This livelong night!
