1. All praise 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.
2. 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.
3. 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 judgment day.
4. O may my soul in Thee repose, And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close, Sleep that may me more vigorous make To serve my God when I awake.
5. When in the night I sleepless lie, My soul with heav’nly thoughts supply. Let no ill dreams disturb my rest. No pow’rs of darkness me molest.
6. Praise God from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him all creatures here below; Praise Him above ye heav’nly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
