Hymn/Song Information

God who madest earth and heaven




God, who madest earth and heaven,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost;
Who the day and night hast given,
Sun and moon and starry host;
Whose almighty hand sustains
Earth and all that it contains:


God, I thank Thee, in Thy keeping
Safely have I slumbered here;
Thou hast guarded me while sleeping
From all danger, pain, and fear;
And the cunning evil Foe
Hath not wrought my overthrow.


Let the night of my transgression
With night's darkness pass away.
Jesus, into Thy possession
I resign myself today;
In Thy wounds I find relief
From all sorrow, sin, and grief.


Help me as the morn is breaking,
In the spirit to arise,
So from careless sloth awaking,
That, when o'er the aged skies
Shall the Judgment Day appear,
I may see it without fear.


Lead me, and forsake me never,
Guide my wanderings by Thy Word;
As Thou hast been, be Thou ever
My Defense, my Refuge, Lord.
Never safe except with Thee,
Thou my faithful Guardian be.


O my God, I now commend me
Wholly to Thy mighty hand;
As the powers that Thou dost lend me
Let me use at Thy command.
Lord, my Shield, my Strength divine,
Keep me with Thee,--I am Thine.


Let Thine angel guard my soul
From the Evil One's dark power,
All his thousand wiles control,
Warning, guiding, me each hour,
Till my final rest be come
And Thine angel bear me home.


---Alternative verses---


God who madest earth and heaven,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Who the day and night has given,
Sun and moon and starry host,
All things wake at Thy command,
Held in being by Thy hand:


God, I thank Thee from my heart,
That through all the livelong night,
Thou hast kept me safe apart
From all danger, pain, affright,
And the cunning of my foe
Hath not wrought my overthrow.


Let the night of sin depart,
As this earthly night hath fled;
Jesus, take me to Thy heart,
In the blood that Thou hast shed
Is my help and hope alone,
For the evil I have done.


Help me as each morn shall break,
In the Spirit to arise,
Let my soul from sin awake,
That when o'er the aged skies,
Shall the morn of Doom appear,
I may see it free from fear.


Ever lead me, ever guide
All my wanderings by Thy Word;
As Thou hast been, still abide
My defence, my refuge, Lord.
Never safe except with Thee,
Ever Thou my Guardian be!


Mighty God, I now commend
Soul and body unto Thee,
All the powers that Thou dost lend,
By Thy hand directed be;
Thou my boast, my strength divine,
Keep me with Thee, I am Thine.
