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 tend'rest blessing
May our eyelids close.

3  Grant to little children
Visions bright of Thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep blue sea.

4  Comfort ev'ry suff'rer
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.

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