Hymn/Song Information

Now God be with us For the night




Now God be with us,
for the night is closing:
The light and darkness are
of His disposing,
And ’neath His shadow here
to rest we yield us,
For He will shield us.


Let evil thoughts
and spirits flee before us;
Till morning cometh, watch,
O Master, o’er us;
In soul and body Thou
from harm defend us,
Thine angels send us.


Let holy thoughts be ours
when sleep o’ertakes us,
Our earliest thoughts
be Thine when morning wakes us,
All day serve Thee,
in all that we are doing,
Thy praise pursuing.


As Thy belovèd, soothe the sick
and weeping,
And bid the prisoner lose
his griefs in sleeping;
Widows and orphans,
we to Thee commend them,
Do Thou befriend them.


We have no refuge,
none on earth to aid us,
Save Thee, O Father,
Who Thine own hast made us;
But Thy dear presence
will not leave them lonely
Who seek Thee only.


Father, Thy Name be praised,
Thy kingdom given,
Thy will be done on earth
as ’tis in heaven;
Keep us in life, forgive our sins, deliver
Us now and ever!
