Now the Day is Over

Verse 1:
Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky

Verse 2:
Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With Thy tend’rest blessing
May our eyelids close.

Verse 3:
Thro’ the long night-watches
May thine angels spread
Their white wings above us,
Watching round each bed.

Verse 4:
When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure, and fresh, and sinless
In Thy holy eyes.

Verse 5:
Glory to the Father,
Glory to the Son,
And to Thee, blest Spirit,
Whilst all ages run.

S. Baring Gould/Joseph Barnby
