St. Anatolius (Brown):

Tr. John Mason Neale, 1853

The day is past and over:

All thanks, O Lord, to thee!

I pray thee that offenseless

The hours of dark may be.

O Jesus, keep me in thy sight,

And guard me through the coming night.

The joys of day are over:

I lift my heart to thee,

And call on thee that sinless

The hours of gloom may be.

O Jesus, make their darkness light,

And guard me through the coming night.

The toils of day are over:

I raise the hymn to thee,

And ask that free from peril

The hours of fear may be.

O Jesus, keep me in thy sight,

And guard me through the coming night.

Lord, that in death I sleep not,

And lest my foe should say,

"I have prevailed against him,"

Lighten mine eyes, I pray:

O Jesus, keep me in thy sight,

And guard me through the coming night.

Be thou my soul's preserver,

O God, for thou dost know

How many are the perils

Through which I have to go.

Lover of men, O hear my call,

And guard and save me from them all!

Amen.
