542. All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night

1 All praise to Thee, my God, this night,
For all the blessings of the light!
Keep me, O keep me, safe from harm
Within the shelter of Thine arm!

2 Forgive me, Lord, through Christ, I pray,
The wrong that I have done this day,
That I, before I sleep, may be
At peace with neighbor, self, and Thee.

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

4 Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise God, all creatures here below;
Praise God above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
