LBW/WOV Hymn: #280
ReClaim/Sola Hymn: #66
1 Now the day is over; Night is drawing nigh;
Shadows of the evening Steal across the sky.
2 Jesus, give the weary Calm and sweet repose;
With your tend'rest blessing May our eyelids close.
3 Comfort ev'ry suff'rer Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil, From their sin restrain
4 Through the long night watches May your angels spread
Their bright wings above me, Watching round my bed.
5 When the morning wakens, Then may I arise
Pure and fresh and sinless In your holy eyes.
6 Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son,
And to you, blest Spirit, While the ages run.
