1  The day is past and over,
all thanks, O Lord, to thee!
We pray thee that offenseless
the hours of dark may be.
O Jesu, keep us in thy sight,
and guard us through the coming night.

2  The joys of day are over;
we lift our hearts to thee,
and call on thee that sinless
the hours of dark may be.
O Jesu, make their darkness light,
and guard us through the coming night.

3  The toils of day are over;
we raise our hymn to thee,
and ask that free from peril
the hours of dark may be.
O Jesu, keep us in thy sight,
and guard us through the coming night.

4  Be thou our souls' preserver,
O God, for thou dost know
how many are the perils
through which we have to go.
Lord Jesus Christ, O hear our call,
and guard and save us from them all.
