Methodist Hymnal (1876)
1 THE day is past and over;
All thanks, O Lord, to thee!
We pray thee now that sinless
The hours of dark may be;
O Jesu, keep us in thy sight,
And save us through the coming night!

2 The joys of day are over;
We lift our hearts to thee,
And ask thee that offenceless
The hours of dark may be;
O Jesu, make their darkness light,
And save us through the coming night!

3 The toils of day are over;
We raise our hymn to thee,
And ask that free from peril
The hours of dark may be;
O Jesu, keep us in thy sight,
And guard us through the coming night!

4 Be thou our soul's preserver,
For thou, O God, dost know
How many are the perils
Awaiting us below;
O loving Jesu, hear our call,
And guard and save us from them all!
