The Christian’s Good-night

“Good-night” in process and “Saviour” with the British spelling.

Verse 1:
Sleep on beloved, sleep, and take thy rest;
Lay down thy head upon thy Saviour’s breast;
We love thee well, but Jesus loves thee best–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!

Verse 2:
Calm is thy slumber as an infant’s sleep;
But thou shalt wake no more to toil and weep;
Thine is a perfect rest, secure, and deep–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!

Verse 3:
Until the shadows from the earth are cast;
Until He gathers in His sheaves at last;
Until the twilight gloom be overpast–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!

Verse 4:
Until the Easter glory lights the skies;
Until the dead in Jesus shall arise,
And He shall come, but not in lowly guise–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!

Verse 5:
Until made beautiful by Love Divine,
Thou, in the likeness of thy Lord shall shine,
And He shall bring that golden crown of thine–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!

Verse 6:
Only “good-night” beloved-not “farewell!”
A little while and all His saints shall dwell
In hallowed union, indivisible–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!

Verse 7;
Until we meet again before His throne,
Clothed in the spotless robes He gives His own,
Until we know even as we are known–
Good-night! Good-night! Good-night!
