119. Glory to Thee, My God, This Night

1 Glory to Thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light:
Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
Beneath the shadow of Thy wings.

2 Forgive me, Lord, for Thy dear Son,
The ill that I this day have done;
That with the world, myself, and Thee,
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

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 judgment day.

4 O let my soul on Thee repose,
And with sweet sleep mine eyelids close,
Sleep, which shall me more vigorous make,
To serve my God, when I awake.
