"Through the Day Thy Love hath Spared Us"
by Thomas Kelly, 1769-1854
THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL
(St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)
1. Through the day Thy love hath spared us,
Now we lay us down to rest;
Through the silent watches guard us,
Let no foe our peace molest.
Jesus, Thou our Guardian be;
Sweet it is to trust in Thee.
2. Pilgrims here on earth and strangers,
Dwelling in the midst of foes,
Us and ours preserve from dangers;
In Thine arms may we repose
And, when life's sad day is past,
Rest with Thee in heaven at last.
