O Lord, support us all the day long of this troublous life,
until the shades lengthen and the evening comes,
the busy world is hushed,
the fever of life is over and our work is done;
then Lord, in thy mercy, grant us safe lodging,
a holy rest,
and peace at the last,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
