Now the day is over


Melody - "Merriall", Joseph Barnby 1838-1896 - Eudoxia


Sabine Baring-Gould, 1834-1924

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 the tend'rest blessing
May our eyelids close.

3. Comfort every suff'rer
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil,
From their sin restrain

4. Through the long nightwatches
May your Angels spread
Their bright wings above me,
Watching 'round my bed

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

6. Glory to the Father,
Glory to the Son,
And to you, blest Spirit,
While the ages run.
