Glory to you, my God, this night

Glory to you, my God, this night
for all the blessings of the light;
keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
beneath your own almighty wings.

2. Forgive me, Lord, through your dear Son,
the wrong that I this day have done,
that peace with God and man may be,
before I sleep, restored to me.

3. Teach me to live, that I may dread
the grave as little as my bed;
teach me to die, that so I may
rise glorious at the judgement day.

4. O may my soul on you repose
and restful sleep my eyelids close;
sleep that shall me more vigorous make
to serve my God when I awake.

5. If in the night I sleepless lie,
my mind with peaceful thoughts supply;
let no dark dreams disturb my rest,
no powers of evil me molest.

6. Praise God from whom all blessings flow
in heaven above and earth below;
one God, three Persons, we adore—
to him be praise for evermore!
