42 Now the day is over

The Hymnal 1982 42

Now the day is over

Sabine Baring-Gould, 1834-1924
Joseph Barnby, 1838-1896

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 Thy tenderest blessing may mine eyelids close.

3 Grant to little children visions bright of thee; guard the sailors tossing on the deep, blue sea.

4 Comfort every sufferer, watching late in pain; those who plan some evil from their sin restrain.

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

6 When the morning wakens, then may I arise pure, and fresh, and sinless in thy holy eyes.
