Lyrics

Now The Day Is Over
(Sabine Baring-Gould)
Music by James Collignon

Now the day is over,
Night is drawing nigh,
Shadows of the evening
Steal across the sky.
Now the darkness gathers,
Stars begin to peep,
Birds and beasts and flowers
Soon will be asleep.

Jesus, give the weary
Calm and sweet repose;
With thy tenderest blessing
May our eyelids close.
Grant to little children
Visions bright of thee;
Guard the sailors tossing
On the deep blue sea.

Comfort every sufferer
Watching late in pain;
Those who plan some evil
From their sin restrain.
Through the long night watches
May thine angels spread
Their white wings above me,
Watching round my bed

When the morning wakens,
Then may I arise
Pure and fresh and sinless
In thy holy eyes,
Glory to the Father,
Glory to the Son,
And to thee, blest Spirit,
Whilst all ages run.
