052. NOW THE DAY IS OVER

Church Hymnal 1941,


1.
Now the day is over,
night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
steal across the sky.

2.
Father, give the weary,
calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.

3.
Through the long night watches,
may thine angels spread
Their white wings above me,
watching round my bed.
