EVENING SONG




Glory to thee, my God, this night
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath thine own almighty wings.


Forgive me, Lord, for thy 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.


Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Rise glorious at the judgement day.


O may my soul on thee repose,
And with sweet sleep mine eyelids closeó
Sleep that shall me more vigorous make
To serve my God when I awake.


If in the night I sleepless lie,
My soul with heavenly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
No powers of darkness me molest.


O! When shall, in endless day,
For ever chase dark sleep away,
And hymns with the supernal choir
Incessant sing, and never tire?


My soul, when I shake off this dust,
Lord, in thy arms I will entrust;
O make me thy peculiar care,
Some mansion for my soul prepare!


O may I always ready stand,
With my lamp burning in my hand;
May I in sight of heaven rejoice,
Whene'er I hear the Bridegroom's voice!


All praise to thee in light arrayed,
Who light thy dwelling-place hast made;
A boundless ocean of bright beams
From thy all-glorious Godhead streams.


The sun in its meridian height
Is very darkness in thy sight;
My soul O lighten and inflame,
With thought and love of thy great name.


When in the night I sleepless lie,
My mind with heavenly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
No powers of darkness me molest.


Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
To die, that this vile body may
Rise glorious at the judgement day.


Lord, let. my soul forever share
The bliss of thy paternal care !
íTis heaven on earth! ítis heaven above,.
To see thy face, and sing thy love!


Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Glory to thee, my God, this night
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath the shadow of thy wings.


Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son
Whatever ill this day Iíve done;
That with the world, myself and thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.


Forgive me, Lord, through thy 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.


Glory to thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light;
Keep me, oh keep me, King of kings,
Under thine own almighty wings.


Teach me to live, that I may dread
The grave as little as my bed;
Teach me to die, that so I may
Triumphant rise at the last day.


Oh, may my soul on thee repose,
And with sweet sleep my eye-lids close;
Sleep that may me more vigorous make,
To serve my God when I awake!


When in the night I sleepless lie,
My mind with heavenly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest,
No powers of darkness me molest.


Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him, ye angels round his throne;
Praise God, the high and Holy ONE.
