[Aiternative Tunes Nos. 144, 174.]
Give Thy holy Angels
Charge to watch o'er me,
May they, while I slumber,
Guard me lovingly.
Underneath the shadow
Of Thy holy wing,
Doth the daylight bring.
So when life is over,
And death comes to me,
Bear my soul to Thee. Amen.
HEAR Thy children, gentle Saviour, l Gentle JESUS, look in pity 1 While we breathe our evening prayer, From Thy Glorious Throne above; Save us from all harm and danger,
Though we sleep, Thy heart is wakeful, Take us 'neath Thy sheltering care.
And for us it beats with love.
Guard us from the wiles of Satan
As we take our rest to-night ; Ever may bright Guardian Angels
Keep us in their watchful sight.
Shades of evening fast are falling,
Day is fading into gloom,
Take us to our heavenly home. Aven.
THE shadows of the evening hours And as 'tis only night's dark hours
That bring the stars in sight,
Be Thou our guiding Light.
May peace, the peace that comes from Look on Thy children from the sky,
Upon our hearts descend, [heaven, And hear us while we pray.
And to Thine Angels charge be given
Our weakness to defend.
Our eyes with slumber close,
O grant us now repose. Amen.
