Words: Sabine Barring-Gould
Music:  Joseph Bamby

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.

Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.

Grant to little children
Visions bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep, blue sea.

Comfort every suff’rer,
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.

When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.
