Bless the Lord as day departs

Bless the Lord as day departs,
let your lamps be brightly burning,
lifting holy hands and hearts
to the Lord till day’s returning.

2. As within the darkened shrine,
faithful to their sacred calling,
sons and priests of Levi’s line
blessed the Lord as night was falling;

3. So may we who watch or rest
bless the Lord of earth and heaven;
and by him ourselves be blessed,
grace and peace and mercy given.
